TORONTO, ON - MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2017 - Holed up in a secluded cabin in Quebec, Montreal’s Caveboy decided it was time to write a song about changing gears, and embracing the future - out came the brand new single, Raconteur. Released this past Friday, Caveboy is excited to drop the brand new video to accompany the song and announce a hometown show on September 29th at O Patro Vys (details below). The new single is available now on iTunes and Spotify.
"After over a year of touring, it felt so good to be creative again" shares the band. "We retreated to nature and allowed for the inspiration to flow through all of us. This song is the first of many that we are so, so proud of, all crafted and constructed by us from the ground up. It's proof of a real evolution for Caveboy.” Stepping into the producers’ chair for the first time ever, the trio ventured over to Ireland to capture this tune and video at Grouse Lodge Studios (as part of their Grand Prize for the Recording Festival 2017). Upon returning to Canada they handed over the audio files to Joseph Donovan (The Dears, Sam Roberts) to fine tune the track in the final mixing stages and Harris Newman (Wolf Parade, A Silver Mt Zion, Vic Chesnutt) for mastering. Feast your eyes and ears on a new tune from one of CBCMusic.ca's lauded “Montreal Emerging Acts To Watch”.
What's The Story about Caveboy?
With a fresh perspective on indie dreampop, Caveboy roots themselves in the primal and builds to multilayered experiences. Influenced by similar childhood identities, Caveboy is the culmination of the shared life experiences of its three members Michelle Bensimon (lead vocals, guitar, synth), Isabelle Banos (synth, bass, backing vocals) and Lana Cooney (drums, backing vocals).
The band was recently included as one of CBCMusic's Montreal Emerging Acts To Watch, this past Wednesday their track Home Is Where was featured on the FX series “You’re The Worst”, they placed 1st in the Recording Festival 2017 (prize included 2 weeks recording at Grouse Lodge Studios), worked with Grammy-winning engineer Cameron Craig (Adele, Annie Lennox) and are currently a Top 10 finalist with the Allan Slaight Juno Masterclass 2018.
Their debut EP, released in October 2015, immediately began charting on Canadian college radio and broke the top national 25 on Earshot. Their music has been featured in SYFY’s “Killjoys”, MTV’s “Awkward” and Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black”.
The band has opened for touring artists such as Ria Mae, Dear Rouge, Operators, Keys N Krates, Neon Dreams, Young Galaxy; and electrified audiences with showcases at Pop Montreal, CMJ, SXSW, and CMW. Caveboy has made waves with festival performances including Glowfair, Sound of Music, Hillside, Pride Toronto, Osheaga, and Rifflandia.
