Self-Titled EP by From The Cave / EP Review

WHEN: 29.04.2016From The Cave EP
LOVE.LIKE.ALRIGHT: LIKE

Y’know, there’s been some good music from us Brits this year, and this is another one. From The Cave are a five piece band from London and this is their new self-titled EP. These guys perform some kind of rock cocktail, taking influences from alternative to grunge to punk to produce something that makes me wanna drink it all up. Mmm, delicious.

Godot features an introduction that immediately kicks you in the face with an introduction that lashes out a beast of a guitar riff alongside drums that do not even know the meaning of inside voices. The vocals are a passionate soul complete with a strained throat and a whole lot of lyricism talking about somebody saying they’d come back. When I was a kid I used to wait for my Mum to return from her job at the hospital because she’d get me a can of Tango and right now I wish this song was around during the times I’d spend waiting by the window every Sunday. Unlike my mother it appears the person Kovax are talking about actually didn’t come back, which is pretty mean but does open a very melodic section of the song which adds another element to it.
