ABOUT THIS ITEM
Having become the toast of the blogs and those in the know with their early releases ‘Rio’ and ‘Gator’, Brighton’s Cave Painting announce the release of a new single, ‘So Calm’, their forthcoming debut album, ‘Votive Life’, and a UK tour throughout September and October.
Cave Painting’s debut album, ‘Votive Life’ furthers the quintet’s subtle blend of atmospherics, swelling choruses and underplayed grooves, to create songs of immense proportion but intimate atmosphere. Throughout, Adam Kane’s vocals act as unifier, whether spinning tales of love and loss or naked emotion, marking out one of the most distinctive voices of 2012.
Prior to the release of the album the band offer ‘So Calm’ as their next single and a taster for those still playing catch up. A fractured calypso imbued with glacial guitars, ‘So Calm’ ably demonstrates the huge assurance that underpins this band’s music.
On the flip, NME favourite Daughn Gibson provides his first ever remix, turning ‘So Calm’ into a heady cocktail of ethereal synths and a surprisingly dancefloor-friendly groove.
