Kassassin Street

This young Psychedelic Rock Band have the whole package, Frank Turner (Producer) turns to twisted psychedelia with Kassassin Street.
 Southsea Psychedelic forerunners Kassassin Street have unveiled their newest creation "The Royal Handkerchief Ballet" recorded at the legendary Konk Studios.
 The track is a strikingly result owing equal debts to Kula Shaker, Beck & Primal Scream whilst being in a class of their own, this is in part thanks to the great musicianship in the band, their individual talents merging to create something fresh & exciting amongst the today's indie genre.

The uniqueness of Rowan Bastables vocals is a key feature on "The Royal Handkerchief Ballet" always the glue that binds the bands diverse musical leanings together, Bastables vocal blasts powerfully through the chaos to provide the band with their instantly recognisable sound, whilst the chorus features the deceptively simple & upbeat "in the morning i won't leave you/cos I'm your good friend' make no mistake about this band this is dark psychedelia in action - a twisted acid trip through the shadowy land of psychedelic indie.

For the video the band have turned to a Brighton based Italian Visual Artist whose vibrant multi-coloured creation is the perfect compliment to the intense music of Kassassin Street.
