It’s been a while since we heard from the hyper-percussive Brooklyn quintet Caveman, but they’re back with news of a second, self-titled record and this great new single, “In the City.” Frontman Matthew Iwanusa’s powerful pipes preside over a synth-heavy soundscape that reminds us of the better stuff on Bear in Heaven’s I Love You, It’s Cool; that combined with the band’s characteristic heavy drums practically transports you to the streets of your home city on a cloudy day. We love that lilting, distorted afropop guitar that kicks in toward the end of the track – it sounds like the sun coming out. The record’s out April 2.

Caveman Tracklist:
01. Strange to Suffer
02. In the City
03. Shut You Down
04. Where’s the Time
05. Chances
06. Over My Head
