Hailing from the south-east of Ireland, The Casanova Wave is the creative outlet of Brian McCartan. The Casanova Wave emerged onto the Irish music scene duringthe Summer of 2010 and it was’nt long before his unique style of music enraptured all who encountered it. His performance and debut EP have won over the ears, hearts and dancing feet of the masses. The happy-go-lucky mix of warm electronica and fresh live instruments are complimented by an array of sounds, melodies, bouncing rhythms, bright guitars and pulsing synths.

The live shows are also fresh and energetic, with Brian performing as much of the music live as he can, switching from instrument to instrument as the music builds – including laptop, synth, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, drums. This fusion of instruments create a full pulsating and uplifting sound that one is defied not to dance to.

Mid-September 2010 saw the release of the self-titled The Casanova Wave EP which has been receiving rave reviews. Among these acclamations, included a much coveted mention in The Irish Times ‘Best Irish Acts of 2010’ list.

The Casanova Wave is preparing to go back into studio to work on his forthcoming debut album and you can catch him at Castlepalooza this August Bank Holiday.
