New Band of the Day: Cave Painting
Share This Article:
Brighton-based Cave Painting are set to release their debut album this month. With their single ‘So Calm’ already receiving plays on Radio One, this album is going to be a big one. They say things like “atmospheric but not epic” and “not minimalistic but every part counts” about their music. They claim it isn’t in your face but is intended to “breeze” over the listener. These descriptions don’t quite capture their brilliant sound accurately, which is far more upbeat than they give themselves credit for. Standout tracks from the impending album are ‘Gator’ and ‘So Calm’. Flavouring maracas and glockenspiel over the more traditional bass and drums 'Gator' is a rhythmic joy that acts as the perfect offset to Adam Kane's melodic vocals. This calm set up continues into the middle of the song when there is a sudden rise in energy when the drums, bass and backing vocals kick in. This change in tempo works well at keeping the listener engaged through the whole song, making it more impressive than Cave Painting themselves might admit.
