Brit & The Cavalry are a Brooklyn-based indie band about to release their second EP Hiker on October 12th. The band formed when Brit put forth her debut EP Chapter One and came to the realization that performing live would be a bit tricky without more hands, so the Calvary swooped in and saved the day. With the addition of some strings, some brass, guitars and drums, the group have put forth a work of palatial orchestrated pop-rock that pulls you in with its confidence and intrigues you with its diversity. The taster below, "Hiker," is obviously a rock number with a melodious hook, but get the album and find the Californian-chill plucked string pop track "The Sun," or the slow jam "The Great Forest Divide" that isn't quite rock, isn't quite folk. If you're in the NYC area, Brit & The Cavalry are holding their record release show Friday, October 15th at 9pm at Pianos. Check them out.
