New Music: Casey MQ

A Canadian talent with a sound that flirts between the experimental and the nostalgic, and is some of the finest queer-pop to have emerged this year.

“Watching old tapes of myself, I realise much of my childhood world was a multi-faceted obsession with boybands. Before even knowing about sexuality, I was seduced by their guise of desirability: a 5 men crew with subtle homoerotic tendencies singing about wanting ‘the girl’ and basking in the surrounding fandom. These images pervaded my childhood and plagued me with confused desire.”
