Off the Hook


The phrase ‘off the hook’ can mean a few different things, one of them being ‘slightly crazy in a fun way’. Which is exactly what it means here, and also describes the appeal of CSS. Slightly kooky, very cute, irreverent, and in their earliest days, charmingly lo-fi. In fact, this video and others from the first album show a band that hasn’t yet made it beyond their own backyards. The diy quality of their videos just underlines the inventiveness of their music, their energy and ideas, the freshness of their image. Leaving the backyard was inevitable, and well deserved, but also inevitably, some of that raw charm did wear off. Talent on the cusp is always a great thing to witness. Cansei de Ser Sexy was a flawless debut that showed just that.
