Listen: Cave Painting- Rio

As SXSW gets into full swing, and we become increasingly jealous of the Austin population for one week (whilst comparing flight prices for 2014), Cave Painting have cheered us up by dropping a new single.

The Brighton band released their debut album ‘Votive Life’ to a warm reception last year, and have been building hype over the last few months by touring with Mercury Prize triangle fans Alt J and covering Frank Ocean for fun.

As the coastal quintet prepare to head out to Texas, they have announced some official new material, in the form of an EP due out next month.

Lead single ‘Rio’ sees Cave Painting further develop their immersive style, as those familiar primal drums are set off against calming vocals and distant guitars (there’s some cracking acapella action too).

The EP is out April 28th through Third Rock Records, check out ‘Rio’ below:
