The Castros continue to carve out their place in the indie rock scene, standing as a testament to the enduring appeal of 90s Britpop while infusing it with their unique, modern twist.

For those seeking a trip down memory lane with a contemporary edge, The Castros’ ‘The Boys’ is the perfect summer anthem, echoing the timeless themes of friendship, youthful adventures, and the simple pleasures of life.
