Kaspar Hauser are a Scottish three-piece specialising in noise-ridden, black-hearted anti-ballads, combining serrated, grinding melodies, effusive, bile-soaked lyrics and an unnatural love for chorus pedals.
Formed in Glasgow in 2015, members have previously played in bands like Divorce and The Downs. Combining their love for darker, more abrasive and challenging sounds with their hatred for the anaemic, tepid worthiness of the majority of the music being made around them, Kaspar Hauser was destined to be a band with a sizeable chip on it’s shoulder; three stroppy, verbose malcontents.
Kaspar Hauser have been steadily building up a reputation in Glasgow for their ferocious live shows and have shared stages with the likes of Lydia Lunch, LA Witch, Soft Kill, Gum Takes Tooth and Girls Names.
