“A darker Maccabees, full of broodiness and great songwriting” – Kate Hutchinson, The Guardian
Liverpool five-piece Cavalry emerged in 2014.
Their dramatic brand of alt-folk marries classic and contemporary influence – from Paul Simon to The National; Fleetwood Mac to Villagers; The Beatles to Bon Iver.
Featured by Huw Stephens (Radio 1) and Dave Monks (BBC Radio Merseyside) as a ‘BBC Introducing Discovery’, further support for their early tracks followed from Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music) and Janice Long (Radio 2).
That attention has seen them earn support slots with Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, The Antlers, and British Sea Power.
“Rivers of hushed Autumnal textures built and swelled into ecstatic song-prayer…” (Getintothis)
