Archaic funk fables and soul migrations from this hybrid musical ensemble, who’s songs explode with heavyweight grooves, fervent vocals and rich instrumentation.
Vocalists Julie Gordon and Damien Mahoney combine and take turns to tell bitter-sweet tales of the self, soul and society.
Soaking up inspiration from afrobeat to post-punk, Indian ragas through to reggae and acid house, Caulbearers’ music is full of dynamic, twisting structures and sonic invention: Mahoney’s tight, multi-layered productions combine hypnotic melodies, colossal basslines and battered jazz beats.
This is roots music from the rainy city. Psychedelic soul with poetic, social observation.
