Second successive year for nu-core trailblazers
Proving that you don’t need a record deal and massive label backing in order to gain traction in the industry, we are delighted to announce that London based outfit Caine is being Grammy considered by the Recording Academy for the second consecutive year.
One of the first unsigned bands to be considered for nominations within their first year of formation when the 2020 single Another Light was considered for not one but five Grammys, Caine have just received news that their latest single is being considered for two prestigious awards in this year’s nominations. Gaslight! Gaslight! will be considered for Best Rock Performance and also Producer of the Year.

Caine may have begun life as a bedroom project a few months earlier, but when vocalist James Sanger-Brown and bassist Josh Bates joined in the summer of 2019, it quickly turned into an earnest undertaking. For a band just shy of celebrating the second anniversary of their debut single, Caine has certainly hit the ground running. After securing their debut festival slot at Breaking Bands Festival and support slots with emerging rock bands like Graces Collide, the band hit the studio hard and has released a steady stream of infectious singles every 2-3 months from November 2019’s debut Get Up 42, right up to their second Grammy considered recording. Continuing to work right through lockdown, the close-knit band’s eighth single release is just around the corner.
To date, two of Caine’s singles have been Grammy considered; 2020’s Another Light was under consideration for no less than five awards including Best Metal Performance and Best Rock Song, and the band’s work is being considered for the second year in succession in the esteemed awards. 2022 will see Caine get themselves and their infectious music in front of new audiences as the band play shows in places they’ve always wanted to light up. Look out for dates on the band’s website and social media.
