Borough Council - Casino

Hotly-tipped Hastings trio Borough Council are today sharing new single 'Casino', their first release as part of Speedy Wunderground's single series. They join a long lineage of artists on an imprint releasing early material from a wide range of now well-established acts including Squid, black midi, Black Country, New Road, Loyle Carner, Kae Tempest and The Lounge Society.

'Casino' is an experimental, expansive new single that provides a cracked window into Borough Council's dark and kinetic energy, pairing murky indie-rock and lo-fi to a melodic motif that loops under its own shadow. The enigmatic three-piece - completed by brothers Haydn and Joe Ackerley, and Tom Healey - offered the following:

"When [Speedy Wunderground boss] Dan saw us play live, Casino was our opener, so that was his first impression of us. It’s basically instrumental, and it felt like a weird choice for a single. That’s what made it exciting. It’s the intro, that’s its purpose. It sets the tone... We wrote Casino a few weeks before the session, and it stayed unfinished up until then. ‘Cause the Speedy ethos is all about capturing a raw moment and the energy of the room, it made total sense for us to finish it on the spot with Dan. It took us as long to write as it did to record and we finished early and had a pint."

• Limited to 500 copies.
