CAVALIER SONG inscribe modern eulogies to celebrate the terrible beauty of rural dystopias. Their cinematic stares study earthy landscapes and post-industrial wastelands, constructing a range of sonic artworks that meditate on the human condition, stirring memory and desire within definitions of a terrific sublime. The results are a series of lush, yet darkly affective, symphonic abstractions weaving in and around melancholic myths and narratives.
Their second album ‘A Deep Well’, released on God Unknown Records, depicts a series of shifting mise en scènes – from Arcadian dysfunction to an omnipresence of troubling signs, unfathomable monoliths and abandoned fracking sites. The album has an edgier, starker, more intense and urgent feel than their acclaimed debut ‘Blezard’; the noisier provocations of ‘Adam’s Apple’ and ‘Heathen’ vigilantly co-existing with the gentler inventions of landscape, developed in the ambient wanderlusts of ‘St Christopher’ and ‘Shields’.
