The Filthy Casuals Musically Are Venturing Into a Funky "Unknown"

The Filthy Casuals play an amalgam of styles rooted in rock and blues that display elements of funk, alternative, jazz, and grunge. This young outfit is a product of its building blocks and with many of the quintet's members stinting in local hip-hop groups, there's also an airy digital-ness to their compositions.

Is it new music like they claim? You be the judge. One thing is certain, this young band is different. Where others could get too far gone into jam territory, specially with backgrounds like theirs, the Filthy Casuals keep it copacetic and concentrate on delivering tracks that play up to their individual strengths.

We had a chance to catch up with the band following the release of its single "My Dreams Never Change" and ahead of next week's drop, "Mexico," to discuss their beginnings, youthful bravado and where they plan on taking the band next.
