Caviare Days: Like Me single review

Caviare Days: Like Me single review

Alt-rock ensemble Caviare Days first began in the New York borough of Brooklyn as the passion project of Swedish siblings Lina and Maja Westin. Once their endeavour developed, guitarist Boris Grubesic, drummer Timmy Grim and keyboardist Marcus Arborelius were all brought on board to round out the line-up.

The quintet went on to record and release a self-titled debut album in 2012, putting it together with producers Mats Björke and Jorge Elbrecht before sending it to Abbey Road Studios to be mastered by Frank Arkwright. A profitable period ensued for the band, during which they were showcased by BBC Introducing in the UK and toured around Germany ahead of returning closer to home to play a series of shows with fellow rockers The Soundtrack of Our Lives.

In the calm that followed, the five musicians headed back into the studio to work on a new EP, which shares its name with its recently released lead single, “Like Me”. The tracks sprints off upon enthusiastic percussion that reverberates eagerly across the air and fuses with an upbeat and riveting riff. It continues to speed vigorously forward through a fast and fervent melody during the first verse. Things remain forceful and determined into the chorus and beyond, as the expressive lyrics are delivered with an enthralling amount of passion and spirit.

The rhythm refuses to relent while an exciting instrumental breakdown takes over just after the end of the second minute. This builds to a lively final vocal assault before the piece fades out upon a brisk beat and lingers. It all amounts to a wonderfully energetic alternative anthem that remains thrilling throughout its three and a half minute run time. Check it out on iTunes now.
