"In the Dark" debut single by The Caracals - indie rock with surf punk vibes from Orange County

Darkness can be a lot of things. In reality it can be scary but it can also be freeing. In it's absolute form it can feel vast and limitless. A perfect place to get lost and to make changes in your life.

In the Dark is the debut single by "The Caracals" released on all streaming platforms on Feb 23. The track was mastered by Brian Lucey (Arctic Monkeys, The Black Keys). It features members of Hanni El Khatib and was recorded by Johnny Bell of Jazzcats studios. It starts with bright though somber acoustic and voice and then gives way to a head bobbing kind of surf punk vibe with running bass lines and choppy guitar downbeats. So very cool and engaging-- I can't wait to hear more.

The Caracals is a band hailing from Orange County, CA. They have an eclectic approach to their blend of garage and indie rock with a gritty feel. The sound of the band is inspired by the gritty, fuzzy yet melodic sounds of artists the likes of The Last Shadow Puppets or The Black Keys. The idea is to craft exciting down-to-earth tracks that are filled to the brims with chunky guitar riffs, energetic vocals and steady rhythm sections with a retro feel. The Caracals set out to reformulate the indie rock sound, while embracing other influences, such as 60s surf, with a contemporary twist.
