In November, UK-band Bear Cavalry released their debut Maple Trails EP. The release is chocked full of danceable, intricate rhythms on guitars and percussion. For me, the band feels like the red-headed stepchild of Vampire Weekend and Arctic Monkeys. The upbeat Afro-Caribbean rhythms paired with punk-infused vocals creates a sound that is unique, albeit ethnically confused. Stream “Roman Summer” below. This track is guaranteed to get your feet shuffling.
