Music Monday: Songs you might want to hear – Caveboy

There is a radio show on CBC here in Canada that occasionally does a feature called SYNTH: Songs You Need To Hear.

Now, I can’t say to someone, “You’ll like this song” (or book for that matter) because I can’t presume that others will share my taste in music (or books), so it is safer to say, “You might like this” and if they don’t like it, so be it.

Maybe you will find a new favorite.

No artist is truly unique because we are all influenced by people who came before us. Although, when the first prehistoric person came up with the idea of a hand stencil, I’m sure everyone around were nodding their heads and thinking “Urhgh” (that means “Nice!”), except the two jerks at the back. One thinking, “I could have done that”, and the other thought, “How can I turn that into an NFT?”

Music is cyclical. Musicians are influenced by what they listened to growing up (and what their parents made them listen to in the car) or the styles they have rediscovered because of all the streaming audio and playlists available. Caveboy has shades of the 80s, some 90s rock, and a hint of 70s.

Caveboy is a Canadian indie pop band formed in 2015 in Montreal. The band released one self-titled extended play in 2015 and eight singles between 2016 and 2019. Their first full-length album, Night in the Park, Kiss in the Dark, was released on January 31, 2020
