THE CASANOVA WAVE
Hailing from the seaside village of Tramore in Co. Waterford, Ireland, The Casanova Wave is the creative outlet of Brian McCartan. Emerging as one of Ireland’s brightest electronic acts in the Autumn of 2010, the ‘shimmering, chiming electro-pop’ on his eponymous debut EP was described by Jim Carroll of The Irish Times as “leaving you wanting more”. His sound could be described as a happy-go-lucky mix of warm electronica complemented with live instrumentation and an array of looped sounds. In many respects his sound is a reflection of summer with melodies that burst with bouncing rhythms, bright guitars and pulsing synths.
