Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Heresy - Cavalry
Cavalry, a Liverpool five-piece indie alternative band are one of those "best kept secret" kind of artists who have only released a few singles, but you can already hear how once that debut drops (with an EP rumored/expected later this year), that there is an excellent chance you are going to be hearing a lot more of them.
Today, I've got their first single off of the aforementioned EP, called "Heresy" for you to check out below:
The first thing you are going to notice about "Heresy" is probably the scope--Cavalry has a lush, cinematic sound that ebbs and flows, and has been brilliantly produced. What I particularly appreciate about "Heresy" in particular is the fact that it does go on a journey, both through the lyrics and musically, and everything feels natural, and that every piece has been expertly placed to create the best possible indie alt track, and while there is a hint of a deep-rooted sadness to the track, at no point does it begin to wallow.
Honestly, "Heresy" sounds like a song from a band who are building up to the release of their 4th album, not their debut: the lads know their sound, have command of it, and have created a track that is endlessly listenable. This is one of those songs that just needs to be on your autumn playlists (and I know it will be on mine).
Keep an eye out for more Cavalry; with that debut EP coming, I am sure we are bound to get more of this folk-tinged alternative sound soon, but if you just cannot wait, check out a couple of their other singles like "Soak" or "Lucerne" to tide you over.
The September 2017 Apple Music Playlist and September 2017 Spotify Playlist are ready! As is tradition, the lists are missing a track ("To Do" (Be Yourself) by LEMZI), but I suppose that's just something that you're going to be used to be now considering the way this always seems to go.
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for TGF on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
