Casual Worker are Glasgow-based duo, Eve King and Hamish Wickham. The band are influenced by goth, coldwave, post-punk and electronic music. King’s brooding vocals and introspective lyrics are paired with Wickham’s guitars, drum machines and synths.
The band wrote and recorded their debut EP Mousetrap at home in 2022. They have since gone on to produce songs exploring human relationships with technology. Their upcoming EP Model Number tackles themes of feminism and women’s rights in a pre-digital world, misogyny and advertising in virtual spaces and the immortality of our personal data.
King’s background is in sonic art, while Wickham’s is in composition and production, mainly in alternative rock group The Dirty Lies. The pair will be joined at The Pyramid Stage by bassist Zander Mavor of Extrapolation Records.
