“Effortlessly pieced together” – Clash
The follow up to their striking debut, Clicks In, which received support from the likes of XFM’s John Kennedy and Clash Magazine, Be Automatic is an atmospheric tour de force, with intense beats and synthesisers providing the perfect vehicle for Dan Frau’s evocative vocals. There’s an emotional quality to the track that is reminiscent of New Order at their very best, whilst maintaining the cutting edge sound of the modern.
You can stream and download the track for free via the CARALIS SoundCloud page.
CARALIS is the brainchild of former Anison front man Dan Frau, who began writing and creating music for his solo project after the band split in late 2014. Collaborating with producer and friend John Merriman, the pair have produced an industrial and, at times, psychedelic sound akin to acts like Caribou and Thom Yorke.
Creatively, CARALIS is a sonic departure for singer Dan having fronted alt-rock band Anison for a number of years. The band, who were signed to Spectra Records, were known for their alternative guitar sound and garnered support from the likes of XFM and BBC 6 Music. However, Dan has shown his creative dexterity, transitioning between alt rock and electro genres effortlessly.
Be Automatic is released via Captoerra Records.
