Originally writing and performing as The Baker Family for the better part of 6 years, the Austin, TX-based quintet of Stu and Liz Baker, Nathan Ribner, Darryl Schomberg II, and Travis Larrew decided to start over, and formed their newest project together, Young Tongue earlier this year. And by February, the members of Young Tongue released their debut EP, Cat Calls which garnered attention for an eclectic approach – although the material is rooted in a deeply percussive driven sound, you’ll hear ethereal guitar chords fed through gentle reverb, gorgeous harmonies and an overall dreamy feel; however, they’ve also been known to balance that out with an extremely angular post punk at the proverbial drop of a hat.

“Caveshare” is the latest single off the band’s soon-to-be released debut full-length effort, Death Rattle and the track is a hauntingly gorgeous and plaintive lullaby that reminds me quite a bit of Remember Remember’s stunning The Quickening as the song reveals an atmospheric quality that’s emphasized by twinkling keyboards, and chiming guitars. And as I previously mentioned, the Bakers employ the use of some gorgeous harmonizing, adding to the song’s lush sound. Sweet dreams everyone, sweet dreams…
