the cambiata - "to heal" (2008)
describing this band is going to be difficult. i can't think of a single band they sound like, and their ep is too diverse to put into any one genre. there's strings, horns, keys.. there's crooning vocals (think somewhere between daniel johns and a young daryl palumbo), intense melodies, interesting lyrics.. it's all here. with influences like the beatles, radiohead, silverchair, and jeff buckley, it's no wonder this twenty-seven minute ep is such an epic listen.
since it's a new release, i'm not posting their ep. i bought it off their myspace page last night, and it's worth every penny of the five bucks i spent. so i'm highly suggesting you do the same. check out the tracks on their myspace, and i promise.. you'll definitely be picking up what these guys are putting down.
believe the hype.
listen to the cambiata on myspace.
ps i've never heard these guys mentioned anywhere, so i'm curious as to what people think. hook it up with some feedback.
pss i'm going to do a post about their lead singer's old band later. more on the post hardcore tip, but also a worthwhile listen.
