CSS have been Yay Or Nay's favourite band since we saw them jumping around like children on Redbull at Glastonbury in 2007. Lovefoxx in a yellow metallic jumpsuit is still our favourite girl crush moment. These guys care less about being taken seriously as musicians and more about having fun and putting on a show with some amazing outfits and set pieces.
The band have teamed up with The Creators Project to explain how digital technology has allowed them to progress from recording music in their own houses to playing to global audiences. Yay Or Nay's favourite part is when their studio is invaded by dogs but they keep the barking on the track because they thought it was funny.
This project is all about how the grand narratives of the 20th century are being replaced by a free and democratic new art form which has been made available by digital technology. In the video CSS have a cut-out of Britney Spears on the stage during a gig. A perfect metaphor, if one was needed, for the freedom of new music in comparison for the "created" acts of the last century.
