Caelo’s ‘All You Need’ is clean, expansive punk rock out of South Africa with a straightforward pop sensibility. The duo says the “track showcases fuzzed-up riffs, grunge-pop hooks and gritty textures, transitioning in between nuances of tone and drive to deliver a melody that’s simultaneously easy on the ear and unrefined.” They say, “alternative rock is where we aim to innovate, and ultimately reinvigorate the musical styles that gave us purpose as musicians, individuals and as a group.” These guys definitely bring a lot of different sounds to the table in a dynamic, refreshing way. There’s an old-guard grunge sensibility in here, but that exists within a later, yet still retro, framework reminiscent of Built to Spill, Duster or Polvo. At the same time, these guys channel some more straightforward punk rock influences and fuse them with a more pensive take on the genre reminiscent of newer Remo Drive or Moose Blood. On top of all that, the group’s musicianship, most notably the bass and the vocals, is really strong. These guys are bringing a fresh approach to a tried-and-true sound.
