Casper Caan Shares Debut Single “Last Chance”

Today Casper Caan releases the first taste of his upcoming EP by way of his debut single “Last Chance.” Resembling the body-moving pulse of LCD Soundsystem, the brash intimacy of Swedish indie-pop, and the stadium-scraping soar of classic-era Oasis, sometimes all at once, “Last Chance” is the perfect introduction to Casper Caan’s musical worldview. This is a song that feels like a rousing journey, starting on a soothing plain of anguished balladry before bursting forth with a boisterous backbeat, bright synth figures, a distorted upright piano medley and Caan’s passionate vocals, and then moving into a full-on dance breakdown using inspiration drawn from the late French producer Phillipe Zdar.

Collaborating on Casper’s music project are renown visual artist Jonathan Zawada (The Avalanches, Flume) who designed the striking cover art, and award-winning animator Kosuke Sugimoto who directed the immersive music video. The single and the video premiered via The UK’s Wonderland who note, “bursting with bright synths and lead by a boisterous production (Caan) showcases his experimentation skills on the track as he tinkers with various hypnotic sounds and reverbs. The single is the perfect introduction to Caan’s oeuvre as he further ventures into his own genre-blurring sound.”
