Video Premiere: Caveman – ‘Shut You Down’

‘Do you know the band Caveman?’ was the opening pitch when this video landed in my inbox. I didn’t (I’m sorry), but with a name like Caveman, I thought I had a rough idea of the similarly rough-round-the-edges soundscapes that the band might have. You know, that post-folksy, probably comes with a few beards kind of sound? Despite being somewhat disappointed with their lack of facial hair, any genre preconceptions were only half right. You see, the other half comes draped in melodic, almost pop-like harmonies, with a spacey chorus that is more likely to have you downloading their back catalogue than lamenting the Pitchfork-driven rise of pseudo-Americana.

So yeah, now I know the band Caveman and they’re pretty darn good. Take a look at the laid back and in the studio video for ‘Shut You Down’ below to see for yourselves:
