Manchester produces yet again – this time in the form of five-piece indie rockers, Broke Casino. Vocalist Ralph McCarthy Schofield described their brand new (and third ever) single as, “a smash and grab rock tune with dance anthem potential.” I truly couldn’t have put it better myself. ‘Tell Me (I Want You)’ is an upbeat and energetic tune filled with intricate synths, Tame-Impala-esque basslines and just an all round good vibe. Produced by George Fitzgibbon (Fuzzy Sun,) the infectious chorus will have you up on your feet in no time, and it’s no surprise that Broke Casino are making a serious name for themselves in the live performance game. Having just become members of the 42’s Records family, this talented quintet shows absolutely no signs of slowing down – and we couldn’t be more grateful!

What does the song mean to you?
‘Tell Me (I Want You)’ is the culmination of a year of lockdown frustration. It expresses our longing for freedom, the need to get out, dance and let loose. A lust for freedom with no holds barred!
Which Netflix series or movie would you like your music to be featured in?
Rhythm Guitarist Sam:
Has to be Sex Education! Our new song has that nostalgic and youthful vibrancy to it that Sex Education has. It just makes you wanna get up and boogie – a real serotonin booster.
When did you realise that music is what you wanted to do?
When I saw Keith Moon playing drums for The Who when I was 6. That inspired me massively! I wanted to be like him – playing in front of thousands. Since then I have studied music at school, college and University and I am now in a band working our way to the top.
What does success mean to you?
Making as little as one person transcend their surroundings to just be overwhelmingly happy at one of our gigs, separate from any troubles in their lives.
