Alt-folk Liverpool five-piece Cavalry have crafted a sound that confidently melds together a mixture of classic and contemporary musical influence, from Paul Simon to The National, Fleetwood Mac to Villagers, The Beatles to Bon Iver. They release their new single “An Understanding” on May 31, 2015.
Since they formed, the band’s music has quickly caught the attention of established and influential musicians, seeing them take on live support slots for British Sea Power, The Antlers and Steve Malkmus.
BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens featured the band as a discovery on ‘BBC Introducing’, with Tom Robinson of BBC 6 Music and Janice Long of BBC Radio 2 both eagerly playing their early tracks. The band have been invited to play at the BBC Music Day on Friday 5 June 2015 and Liverpool Sound City.
It’s hard to believe Cavalry have achieved so much in so short a time, with just two online tracks and a handful of live shows under their belts, but their music strikes a deep chord on first listen.
Previous downloads, “Leaves” has all the dreamy insistence of a long-lost Grant Lee Buffalo gem, while “Lament” hints at the understated anthemic pull of Band Of Horses at their best.
Cavalry are Alan Croft on lead vocals, Austin Logan on guitar, Paul Jones on bass, Steven Taylor on guitar and Gareth Dawson on drums.
