Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Marabar Caves. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the rock vibes of their songs.
I liked the sound of this band a lot, from the first notes they reminded me of the Rolling Stones and other legendary rock bands.
Music that takes inspiration from the past, in fact, these guys were around to excite people with their songs already in the 80s.
After years of silence, they decided to walk the stage again and they announced their return with the single ‘Trouble’.
This interesting song manages to create a perfect balance between past and future. It is as if it contained the past essence of this band that merges with a new, more modern, compositional approach.
Even if they haven’t played together for years, it feels like the Marabar Caves have maintained enviable musical alchemy. The hours spent in the rehearsal room sweating led to this result.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Trouble is Marabar Caves’ Single Out Now!
Pure Classic Rock!
The Marabar Caves were formed in Northampton in 1982 (originally under the name Yellow Umbrella). The band was started by guitarists and school friends Tony Riseley and Bill Westley together with drummer Steve Goddard and bassist Chris Jess. The band grew up in the heyday of 1970’s punk which influenced their sound and attitude. Tony and Bill would both cite The Clash as a major influence.
The reunion of the band always had to have new material as an aim and not just be a heritage exercise. New songs have been recorded and the first new single by The Marabar Caves in 34 years, entitled “Trouble”. It was recorded and mixed with producer Jon Martin at various times through the events of 2020 and 2021 (as restrictions allowed). Trouble riffs on the theme of sometimes having too much of a good time. Despite having a collective age of over 230, the band can still show the youngsters on the Northampton music scene a few things about that!
