The Cavalcade are an Indie Pop duo from Preston, featuring Craig Phillips (Vocals/Guitar) and Stephen Birtchnell (Guitar/Keyboards/Bass). Their melancholic guitar pop is inspired by bands such as Felt, The Smiths and Belle & Sebastian. After forming in early 2009, the band released their debut EP, Meet You In The Rain, to an enthusiastic response from the indie-pop community. A single on the Miami-based label Cloudberry Records was soon followed by a limited edition EP for the German label Vollwert Records, before the band signed to Pebble Records at the end of the year. Their debut album Many Moons, recorded in a bedroom, continues the DIY ethic of their previous releases and is driving whirlwind of guitars that evokes the restlessness of small town life. Included is the single “I’m Like A Ship Trapped Inside A Bottle” as well as re recorded versions of some now unavailable earlier recordings including “Meet You In The Rain”, which despite being self released, was many peoples single of 2009. This album will create many new fans while living up to the expectations built up over the past year of an already devoted fan base.
