• Single: ‘Every Little Thing’ – Camouflage Recordings: March 19th
“Anthemic chorus after anthemic chorus” NME
“What an incredible talent” Mary Anne Hobbs (XFM)
“Gloriously hypnotic, it carries his former band’s synth-pop roots but with a more serene outlook” Faded Glamour
On March 19th Caan Capan, formerly of Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, returns with the bass heavy, electronic pop noir of second single ‘Every Little Thing’.
With Caan’s debut album nearing completion, January saw his version of the Japan classic ‘Ghosts’ gaining fans in high places, including John Lloyd from Tribes, Eddy Temple Morris and original Japan member Richard Barbieri, who commented on YouTube, “I love your new take on this.”
‘Every Little Thing’ is backed by remixes from Swedish dubstep talent Dynamikk, plus the classic synth pop ‘Stockholm’ radio edit. Watch this space for forthcoming versions from hotly-tipped electro-pop act The Ghosts and fast-rising UK hip-hop star Benny Banks.
Caan headlined London’s XOYO on 29th February, with support from recent Island signing Alex Clare, and GO SEES. Plus, he’ll be bringing his stunning live show to Secret Garden Party, with more dates TBA.
He has also teamed up with Reebok to produce audio/visual content – released shortly to coincide with the campaign for ‘Every Little Thing’. Until the release of the video in February, you can see footage of Caan recording the track late last year at Dean Street Studios: http://tinyurl.com/85wchyy
