Press Play (House of Creatives Music Festival Edition): Caveman
October 22, 2017Ana Rojo
Formed in 2010, New York based rock band Caveman have been concocting and experimenting with sounds and genre styles since their inception. They have claimed a spot at the center of the bustling New York music scene, and their music has since gotten major attention sending them to festivals and venues around the world.
Caveman takes influence from experimental, classic and indie rock and combining it with African music traditions to add a unique sound. Constantly evolving and moving into different genres and having released three albums since their beginning, each one sounding more different than the next.
The band has since performed throughout Europe and have performed at SXSW, Sasquatch Festival and have opened up for big acts like Edward Sharped & the Magnetic Zeros and the War on Drugs. Their third record released early last year, Otero War, was their most ambitious and took three years to develop. Using more folk and electronic elements, such as the use of more synthesizers, and also lead singer Matthew Iwanusa maturing their lyrics, they definitely had more to express and more freedom in their musical choices.
Hoping we don’t have to wait three years for new music, you can catch Caveman at Virginia Key Beach for House of Creatives Music Festival on November 11 and 12. You don’t want to miss these guys who will take the stage alongside MGMT, alt-j, and so many more. And while we wait, have a listen to “Never Going Back.”
