From North East Coast, Newcastle, UK, we present you Cape Cub, a pop rock project headed by Chad Male, showing us their second EP: 6am. In his first EP (Closer) we could’ve guess which way he would take, with sonorities similar to Coldplay, London Grammar, Bastille or Amber Run, this is another band doing what we like to call “Brit Pop” and they do it perfectly.
Guess what? The second EP sounds exaclty the same, but in a good way! He chose his tread and so far so good.
All I Need opens the EP and it’s a love song -what other proper way to open an EP?- the lyrics talk about an unrequited love but the drums and guitar riffs give it a different meaning. Is strong and full of personality that makes us believe that one day this love willl be matched. “I could have start a war” though “you were all I need” express exactly that.
Lifeline keeps the same line of feelings, “I will catch you if you fall” is the pick-p line for this track-2 and keeps the hope alive for this brokenheart. Is a song built in a crescendo that reaches its pick on the last chorus, after the solo bridge. It’s a very easy-going song with a catchy chorus that will make anyone sing this all day -as it is all the other songs, by the way.
In Heat of The Night the beat gets more deep, his voice, lyrics and melody gets more personal and introspective. “Four years ago we were flying above / I guess I’ll let go” is putting an end on this (un)love story, and using the same cliché as in the beginning, it is the best way to close this EP. Whether you don’t pay much atention to the lyrics, you can still listen to its story, it’s just well written through words and verses, and notes and melodies.
We believe Cape Cub is building its tread in music and open its way to be a Brit Pop band worldwide succeeded, and this EP is a great example of that.
