Son of Cabe Set To Release Indie Pop Anthem 'Whistler'

For many of us, this year has halted even the best-laid plans. Yet for up and coming duo Son of Cabe, this year has proven to be the catalyst for a whole new music venture. Made up of Conor McCabe and Jack Holland, this Guildford based indie-pop duo curates their own funky fusion of electronic and indie temperaments. Having met at university, Son of Cabe was birthed out of the solo projects of Conor McCabe. With Jack Holland brought into the picture, Son of Cabe has flourished into its fully realised form - and we couldn’t love it more. We certainly aren’t the only ones; Son of Cabe has earned themselves over an immense three hundred and fifty thousand streams on the platform alone. Pretty huge deal for a band that only released their first single in 2018. After receiving a whole host of attention for their single ‘Let Go,’ Son of Cabe are building on this momentum with their most realised track to date.

‘Whistler’ is the fresh single from the talented two, set to be released at the end of the month. Whilst enduring the draining days of the recent lockdown, one half of the duo Conor McCabe found himself weighed down by the constant chaos and never-ending negativity of this year. ‘Whistler’ is the powerful product of this isolation; at it’s core is the escapism we have all craved these recent months.

“I was sick of constantly reading depressing stuff on the news and the negative people I was surrounded by. It just felt toxic, and not the kind of environment I wanted to be a part of. Whistler’s me desperately fantasising about the idea of running away with someone to a better place, a better quality of life” - Conor McCabe

Conor offers up a vibrant vocal performance throughout the track, treading the line between intimate and empowering with an ease only such a proficient performer could provide. Jack Holland’s drums create a drive and a powerful pulse throughout the track. ‘Whistler’ is sculpted on a soundscape of subtle synths juxtaposed by the raw, impactful nature of Jack’s acoustic drums. Riding over the rapid rise and falls of the backing, Conor’s vocals sit front and centre - and, boy, does he sound good. With its release date the 27th of November, it’s evident Son Of Cabe are setting out to infiltrate our airwaves this year with their fresh found sound in the realms of indie pop.
