The Casket Girls, comprised of Ryan Graveface (Black Moth Super Rainbow, The Marshmallow Ghosts, Dreamend) and newcomers, Elsa and Phaedra Greene, are back with two new songs for the first ever Cassette Store Day. The limited edition tape will be released on September 7 on Graveface Records & Curiosities and features “Holding You Back” & “Suddenly.” The Fader premiered “Holding You Back” and said “it’s got a subtle creepiness to it, seemingly tied to the ethereal, double-female vocals, like an extremely happy song that you might hear over the closing credits of a horror movie.” Holding You Back” is also available to post and share via SoundCloud.
The cassingle follows up The Casket Girls debut album Sleepwalking which was released late last year on Graveface and a limited edition Record Store Day EP. Those releases were praised by publications such as Bust, NPR, Paste, PopMatters, Spin, The Washington Post and more. The band toured in support of those albums with The Faint, Trust and Black Moth Super Rainbow among others.
The forthcoming cassingle will also act as a competition between the two new songs. Check back on The Casket Girls Facebook page in the coming weeks as there will be a poll, and the song that wins will go on their next full length due in early 2014.
