Yesterday when I wrote about the Cave Singers' new track "Easy Way", I hinted that there was certainly more than that track to be on the lookout for. It seems the Seattle folk rockers are getting a little antsy as they wait not only for their new album to street in about a week's time but also for their supporting tour to begin and are pretty much just throwing track after track into the void that is the fathomless trenches of the internet.
"It's a Crime" marks a noticeable change of pace in the direction of Naomi we've been subjected to. While "Have to Pretend" and "Easy Way" are light, jovial idylls, "It's a Crime" sees the mood darkening a bit, calling back to No Witch's occasional outlaw rock feel. It's rougher, tougher, and most assuredly more badass than the Naomi tracks we've heard thus far which adds a whole new dimension to what sounded like it was going to be a more light-hearted endeavor. An exciting development that continues to build on album release anticipation while also giving fairly no idea what to expect in terms of the overall mood and feel of the album.
If you don't feel like waiting for the official release date of the Cave Singers' fourth full length record on March 5th, you get an instantaneously download with any pre-order.
