Artist Of The Week


Classic rock, known for its memorable guitar solos, heavy riffs, and flashy themes, once enjoyed great popularity. Caesaria, however, has managed to preserve the essence of classic rock while infusing it with a unifying energy. Théo, Thomas, and Louis began a unique musical journey during their high school years. They developed their distinctive live sound by drawing inspiration from bands like The Doors, The Strokes, Foals, and Oasis. In March of the previous year, they released their debut album, All We Have Is Now, which featured lyrics reflecting the thoughts, reactions, and emotions of three young men, resonating with an entire generation. After collaborating with well-known figures like Grammy award-winner Brett Shaw (Foals, Florence + The Machine), who has been nominated for the Mercury Prize twice and the Ivor Novello award three times, they captured their club-rock essence in an electrifying EP titled Connection Loss. Their work caught the attention of esteemed producers Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons), Stephen Marcussen (Red Hot Chili Peppers, R.E.M.), and Christophe Pulo (1984, Electric Suicide Club) for their debut album. The French trio further showcased their talent by reinterpreting the 1984 hit single “Smalltown Boy” by Bronski Beat. The original song achieved high positions in various countries, including the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, Canada, France, Ireland, Italy, Switzerland, and West Germany. Caesaria is currently working on their second album, teaming up again with Brett Shaw, which is inspired by the British music legacy and is scheduled for release in spring 2024.
