I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not as good as I’d like to be at discovering new music. But since life took a turn with my new job, I’ve been working on a couple of music based projects that have introduced me to some great new bands and artists.
One of those is Cape Cub, an upcoming North East singer-songwriter from a small coastal town just up the road from where I grew up.
HIs dreamy, sweeping songs have a raw, emotional feel that draws you in. I’ve been lurking on SoundCloud for the last week, playing the songs on repeat as I tap slowly away at the novel.
The video for Closer is a stunning tale of unrequited love, set against a bleak North East backdrop that always makes me think of home.
As a bonus, check out another Cape Cub song – the beautiful Swim.
