‘The next band on stage for people to wrap their ears around were The Soundcasters.  Much like eating a masterpiece of a biscuit as soon as they started playing you knew there was something special about them.  As they launched into We Are The Soundcasters you heard a unique and warm sound with a few 60s vibes, but also something not quite like anything else around.  Their engaging and unique style even brought a smile to the most adamant rockers.  After an ear catching set the band ended on the infectious French Habit, leaving big smiles on their audience.  Look out for this band in the future!’

​Every year at the IPO, we find a bit of a nugget.  We found this year’s nugget tonight, on the front stage of the Cavern club in the form of The Soundcasters. This is a young band from Kent who are really vibrant, playing jumpy catchy tunes and had a large crowd watching them. One of the things that set them apart from many of the other young bands, was their professionalism. They included a cover of The Band’s “The Weight” complete with glorious Crosby Stills and Nash type harmonies. David Bash summed up at the end of their set, saying “what an impressive band” and we totally agree. We hope that we will have the opportunity to see them again some time. Their songs really stand up and set them apart from many of the other young bands appearing at this festival. Speaking with some of our IPO friends after the gig, they all agreed this is a great band.’​

A shift in sound saw The Soundcasters ply their unique indie sound brimming with 60’s vibes.  Despite the contrast with the previous two bands the audience took The Soundcasters to their hearts.  Their quirky energy made it hard for onlookers to resist vaguely rhythmic movements (mine were very vague).  Good banter and the odd guitar flourish helped give the set an inviting feel as they went into their final song French Habit.  French Habit’s crowd friendly ending even tempted a little sing-along out of the audience.  The guitar riff for French Habit is still echoing around my head.’
