Tony Castles do great justice to dream pop with this simmering and sweet six-plus minute demo “Pirates.” They’re a Brooklyn band who’ve been floating around Brooklyn lineups anywhere between Effi Briest, Darlings, and Dinowalrus. They were only a blip on our radar until recently, and now for they’re playing a shit-ton of CMJ dates, including a date tomorrow at Webster Hall with Das Racist and Suckers, as well as a spot on our 5-day Imposition, for the Famous Class day show.

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.
