UNDER THE RADAR: Casey Hopkins – “Touch”.
A modern take on roots-based rock’n’roll – think surging riffs, shattering ride cymbals and relentless drum fills – Casey Hopkins comes complete with writhing attitude aplenty.
Declaring his mission to “fight mediocrity”, the NY-based muso throws a handful of grit into the ring with his single “Touch“. Blending the track’s scuzzy guitar solos with a retro, 60s kitsch aesthetic, courtesy of Jensen Gore and Ben Davis, this is a winner for any rock’n’roll fan with a soft spot for blues.
