Live Concert Photography: Caveman

The Bowery Electric

March 1, 2016

With the release of their debut album Coco Beware and their sophomore self-titled album, New York-based quintet Caveman— comprised of Matthew Iwanusa (vocals, guitar), James Carbonetti (guitar), Jeff Berrall (bass), Sam Hopkins (keys) and multi-instrumentalist Matthew Prescott-Clark — have developed a profile locally and nationally for a moody and gorgeous guitar and synth-based sound that at times owed a sonic debt to Peter GabrielU2 and others. As a result the quintet has toured around the world, playing shows with the likes of The War On DrugsWeezer and Jeff Tweedy, and they’ve received praise not just from this site, where they’ve become mainstays and from a number of major media outlets.

This summer will mark the release of the band’s long-anticipated third full-length release    Otero War through Cinematic Music Group, and to build up buzz for the forthcoming album and their lengthy Spring/Summer tour, the New York-based quintet played an intimate, invite-only set of material from the new album, including the Bruce Springsteen “Dancing In The Dark“-inspired first single “Never Going Back,” as well as a few songs off their previous releases — in particular “In The City,” “Old Friend” and “Vampirer,” at The Bowery Electric the other day.  And from what I can tell you, I’ll be looking very forward to the new album’s release. Check out tour dates and photos from the set below.
