Caveman - "In the City" (stream)

Brooklyn indie band returns with new album in the spring.

Caveman have released the single, “In the City", from their upcoming self-titled sophomore album due April 2 via Fat Possum Records. With a blast of dense instrumentation, the song begins with a strong percussive vibe over synths and guitar. As singer Matthew Iwanusa confidently introduces the urban theme, wandering guitar lines begin blurring lines with backup vocals.

PopMatters caught Caveman live during a strong but short set at last year's Crossing Brooklyn Ferry, and then also a few weeks later playing an arty gig at the Brooklyn Museum. The band is heading out on another tour soon, see dates below.
