In March 2015, Cantaloupe released their debut album, “Zoetrope” – a bubbling, kaleidoscopic feast of electro pop, krautrock and afro-pop.
At that point Cantaloupe were a four-piece, mostly based in Nottingham. In the last three-and-a-half years, members have dispersed, reproduced, quit, been swallowed up by life/work/the world.
After a period of hiatus, confusion and exhaustion, earlier this year the band – now comprising Aaron Doyle (drums) and John Simson (synths) with support from a range of brilliant guest vocalists – deposited nine tracks of soaring, expressive, melancholic pop music on the Hello Thor doorstep. And everything made sense again.
Cantaloupe release their new album “Error States” on limited edition vinyl and digital download through Hello Thor Records on Friday 26 October 2018. It is thoughtful, infectious synth pop; overflowing with ideas and invention. In short, it rules.
Come and join us for a party to celebrate the launch of “Error States” at The Maze on Friday 19 October. All being well you will be able to get your hands on the album a week before its official release. We can also promise you:
– the first live performance by Cantaloupe for over three years, featuring as many guest vocalists as possible
– one or more DJs playing a series of total party bangers before during and after the bands
– EXTREME good times
