Cabins – In Blue
It has been a few years since Sydney’s Cabins released their debut mini-album Bright Victory. Bright Victory was a captivating introduction to the four-piece, sometimes a little youthfully ambitious, but at its peak moments it was quite staggering.
At long last Cabins have returned and ‘In Blue’ demonstrates that during the intervening years a thorough education in songcraft has been undertaken. The song’s press release reveals Cabins have re-interpreted a Roy Orbison melody. The doo-wop waltz and Leroy Bresington’s chilling croon indeed confirm the debt owed to the Big O, however it is not mere mimicry. ‘In Blue’ comes swinging with the sound of a band that understand one another’s playing and are working together to enhance the song’s heart-wrenching potency.
The song is available for download from the band’s soundcloud. Fingers crossed for an album before the year’s end! They’ll be playing at the Annandale Hotel October 25
