It’s been a long wait for new music from the charismatic Caruso, a band hard to pigeon hole – a phenomenal live band that drift effortlessly between folk and rock, punk and traditional. There’s even a hint of blues and country in there for good measure, and songwriter and driving force Shane Ó Fearghail is fine with that.
The first new music from Caruso since acclaimed 2008 debut album “The Watcher & the Comet”, “FREAK” is an up tempo affair with a refrain that sticks in your head from the first time you hear it. “FREAK” is what it claims to be – a song about being different. All clichés firmly in place “FREAK” is definitely where Caruso are and Shane wants the band to be.
