Tony Castles Live
Feb 11 - Pianos - NY, NY
w/ Headless Horseman and Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson
Paul Sicilian's agile voice, along with the rougher production choices keep "Black Girls In Dresses" interesting, since the band brings in, say, a barking guitar sound or flute-like keyboard, slowly over the song's five minutes.
Tony Castles drift away to the cloud palace on falsetto wings and a fine sense of improvisation. Watch this band become big.
Love Shack, Baby
With big chords that echo and reverberate as if they were part of the score to a modern day Sergio Leone showdown scene, Tony Castle's No Service has a satisfying flow that includes a definitive beginning, middle and end.
Reverb-slicked falsetto, sharp bass-lines, hip drums, hazy guitar...Tony Castles make me able to smile again.
Tony Castles was born in August 2008 in Brooklyn, NY. For having been formed one year ago, the band has plenty of history. Paul Sicilian and Gabriel Wurzel first crossed paths as freshmen in high school. The two soon began playing together in bands and ended up attending college together continuing to write music throughout. During this time they were introduced to fellow student and musician Willie Miesmer. Within a year after graduation all three moved to Brooklyn where they reconnected and began playing together in loose free form sessions, often swapping instruments and experimenting with loop pedals and samplers. The chemistry was instant and they continue inventing, deconstructing and reinventing their sound all the while clinging to a shared adoration for both strong vocal melody and open space.
