Catching Up With Cazzette

We’re excited to be celebrating your newest release, the Desserts EP. How would you say your sound has evolved since your debut album, Eject?

Sebastian: After EJECT we were pretty conscious of getting stuck in the ‘EDM bubble’ that was emerging. We re-evaluated what we wanted to stand for and made a conscious decision to open our sound to influences that meant something to us. There is definitely a focus on songs rather than just club tracks and I think that’s really apparent throughout Desserts.
