The Cave Singers – Naomi

  • February 5, 2013

Seattle based indie folk act The Cave Singers return with their fourth full-length album, Naomi, the follow-up to the 2011’s rock oriented album, No Witch. Naomi came to life over the course of a year, resulting in an effort that captures the energy of The Cave Singers’ live performances. The album takes on a easygoing and expansive vibe that tackles universal truths and complexities of life such as love, suffering, surrender and redemption. These are expressed through a powerful collection of songs about car ownership, fireworks, tree houses, addiction, relocating, and spirituality. A few standouts include “Have to Pretend” complete with rolling guitar riff and Doo-wop-esque choruses; and “Easy Way”, a driving track with shimmering guitars and steady bassline alongside lead singer Pete Quirk’s soulful vocals. Naomi is a richly satisfying album and makes for a nice start to 2013’s music releases. – Written by JFelton
