Cassette Records is Steve's latest EP and was released on 30 June 2014. Rocking with touches of electronica, folk and films, the album has influences of Zeppelin, Nina Rota, Neil Young, Queens of the Stone Age and Tron.
The thunderous single “Invisible to the Touch” opens the album, a song about your sins hunting you down!
