Cave Ghosts - New Music "Introducing"

Facebook / caveghosts.tumblr.com

I came across Cave Ghosts when I posted about the Hunk! cassette back at the end of November as the bands vocalist Jen Connell added her gorgeous, dreamy vocals to the fellow Dublin bands release. I posted links in my draft folder to remind me to download the bands EP and make this post shortly after. I forgot. Today though I came across the post and the rest, as they say, is history...

I belatedly re-discover an EP of sweet, summery sounds that would have raised a few smiles over the cold, winter months, a three track demo EP (available to download free via Cave Ghost's Bandcamp) of overwhelming, swoonsome beauty. Opener "Hideway" the perfect example with its sumptuous cocktail of vintage sounds, uke-strumming and drum popping. I can't help but make similarities between the romantic vibe of Tennis' first LP, that's no bad thing to me.

Throughout Cave Ghosts show an effortless way with melody and knack of creating well-crafted pop tracks that are made to be enjoyed. Jen's vocals on the similarly irresistible "When You Go Away" float above bright, poppy instrumentation and on "La Concha" there's a warm, sun-drenched fuzz-pop sound with slaphazard drums and reverb-a-plenty. All in all, it's rather ace. Download the EP now before you forget about it...
