Steve Nelson (of U Say USA)
Castle (Newport, RI)
Castle wages a peaceful war using music and human energy to accelerate global enlightenment and spread dazzling positivity. Castle plans to conscript you and your loved ones into an army of everlasting friendship. A family bound not by blood but by harmony, Castle will high five your inner child until you know yourself better.
This music will share your body. It will invite you onto the dance floor and release you for the first time. Bring a whip and a fedora because each show moves like an action movie. If you aren’t laced in tiger stripes by the end of night we will know you are wilder than anything we can tame. Then we will ask you to join the band.
Castle approaches music like a think tank approaches the world of ideas. The sound can evolve from quiet chamber folk to explosive and danceable indie rock. Harmonies, melodic hip hop and zombie rock operatics have been known to surface at shows.
