“NEVER GOING BACK”
 
OTERO WAR OUT JUNE 17th VIA CINEMATIC
 
SUPPORTING FRIGHTENED RABBIT ON NATIONAL TOUR THROUGH THIS MONTH

WATCH // EMBED “NEVER GOING BACK”

“An optimistic, anthemic jam.”
FADER
 
“…the set is distinctly their most mature to date, and could be something of a mainstream breakthrough for the band.”
Billboard
 
“On ‘Never Going Back,’ bright synths and rhythmic guitar strums elevate a melodic vocal and hook that will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. It seems Caveman are coming into their own; I think we are in for a treat with Otero War.”
Stereogum
 
“…rousing new song with a strong bossgaze vibe. The main complaint is that at 3 minutes the track is too short, it leaves you wanting more!”
Under The Radar

About
 
Since Caveman first formed in 2010 they’ve claimed a spot for themselves at the center of the New York music scene, become in-demand DJs, toured the world (sharing stages with The War on Drugs, Jeff Tweedy, and Weezer), and received critical praise from the most prestigious media. Now the band – Matthew Iwanusa, lead guitarist James Carbonetti, bassist Jeff Berrall, keyboardist Sam Hopkins and multi-instrumentalist Matthew Prescott Clark – is aiming higher.
 
Caveman have their sights set on bigger goals, so on their third time around they made their biggest-sounding, most ambitious album yet.
 
Otero War was created over the course of three years, completely inverting the ramshackle methods used to make 2011’s CoCo Beware and their 2013 self-titled LP. While Iwanusa’s stepped further out front as a songwriter, arranger, and singer, Otero War is still a group effort made with contributions from the band’s entire unofficial extended family. Albert Di Fiore, who engineered their last album, returns with an expanded role to produce. New confidant Michael Brauer was brought in to mix. Iwanusa’s father even contributes string arrangements. Longtime friend and New York punk-scene legend Johnny T, who over the years has employed members as bartenders and DJ’s at his bars, helped the band get signed as the first rock act on Cinematic Music Group, home to rappers Joey Bada$$, G Herbo and Cam’ron.
