Description

'The Cave Singers no longer sound like buskers picked up off the streets of Seattle, but they haven’t totally abandoned the stomp-and-clap rhythms that defined their 2007 debut, Invitation Songs, and carried all the way through 2011’s No Witch. The group seemed poised to shed their shaggy campfire aesthetic entirely with 2013’s Naomi, “goin’ electric” a la Dylan and adding former Blood Brothers bassist Morgan Henderson for some extra punch.' --Consequence of Sound


"The Cave Singers’ members all started in post-punk and hardcore bands like Pretty Girls Make Graves, Hint Hint and Cobra High, which makes their Pacific Northwest brand of rootsy folk-rock worthy of a raised eyebrow. But four albums into a solid career, the Seattle group has long moved past the comparisons, focusing instead on consistently releasing catchy records and delivering exciting live shows. ... While The Cave Singers seem to understand the importance of a good ballad (see: “Evergreens”), they sound most complete when channeling their harder, edgier roots. “It’s a Crime,” one of the grittier tracks on Naomi feels like a throwback to No Witch’s “Black Leaf” or “No Prosecution If We Bail” in the best possible way, grooving and moving alongside Quirk’s attitude-laced yells. Likewise, “Easy Way” and “When the World” are straightforward guitar songs that fall somewhere in between classic Tom Petty and pre-millennium Wilco." --Paste
