As one of the most traditional guitar bands to emerge during the Brit-pop era of the mid-'90s, Cast have carved out a sound that was heavily indebted to the British Invasion of the early '60s, yet it was infused with a mystical, pseudo-hippie lyrical sensibility, which lead singer John Power expanded upon.
What really made Cast into a success was Power's gift for simple, classic pop hooks, as demonstrated on the hit singles "Fine Time," "Alright," and "Walkaway."
With seven Top 10 singles, three Top 10 albums and a rich catalogue of timeless songs including 'Walkway', and 'Alright', Cast were one of the big success stories of the Britpop era.
Power's gift for sparkling melodies and instantly additive hooks remains as strong as ever. Power has hinted that the new album Love is The Call released in February 2024 will feel like a missing link between his time with The La's and Cast's first breakthrough with their debut album 'All Change'.
