CAVIER The Thin Mercury Sound|

Cavier are a young rock/pop band with indie leanings. Think Blur, Dandy Warhols and the Flaming Lips and you kind of get an idea.
Opener 'Clean Getaway' is a pleasant guitar-led piece that could easily be a single. 'Lioness' follows and is more upbeat, with deeper vocals.
There’s a very clean sound throughout which will appeal to most, but not quite enough substance to really grab you and drag you through a hedge backwards, and that’s what you almost feel it needs.
If this gets any mainstream airplay, there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be highly successful though.
