New Music from Caveman

Posted on Nov 9, 2011

Caveman was born in New York in January of 2010. The sound they crafted in a large, dark room is equal parts chamber pop, dreamscape, and horror film score. At a Caveman show you will hear four-part harmonies, spaced-out guitars, synths, and much drumming. Stereogum called them one of the best new bands of 2011 saying “songs like “Decide” and “Thankful” set up simple, spare, darn pretty melodies.” Fader attributes the band’s appeal to their ability to “take a deceptively simple song like “Great Life”…and transform it into something bigger, adding texture through soft, driving rhythm, layered and looped harmony and delicate, scissoring keys.” The band has shared the stage with Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic ZeroesWhite Rabbits, Here We Go MagicCursive & Amazing Baby. Maybe you caught them at one of their many shows at CMJ this year, if not – as KEXP puts it, “if you’ve never heard of New York quintet Caveman, that’s all about to change.”
