Cave Sessions

After your favourite band breaks up there’s little that will soothe the pain, but hearing about an unreleased studio session certainly helps. Tracking The Colour’s Cave Sessions down for the best part of two years, countless internet searches brought nothing.

After meeting some of the former members this summer in LA, my quest came one step closer to completion, but further details of the 5 track EP could only wet my appetite, not fulfil it.

Then one day, I receive a message from lead singer Wyatt Hull, we get chatting and a day later the Cave Sessions are waiting in my inbox.

Reworking tracks from their LP ‘Between Earth And Sky’, including a wonderful version of ‘Black Summer’ and album stand-outs ‘Save Yourself’ and ‘Kill The Lights’, the Cave Sessions recordings are everything fans of The Colour could have ever hoped for, but with release rights still in the hand of EMI off-shoot label Rethink, the EP is unlikely to make it into the public domain.

For fellow fans, the Cave Sessions have always been the Holy Grail, and trust me, they’re worth the hunt. You can probably catch the former five-piece at shows of friends Delta Spirit or The Shys, or of course gigs for their new outfits We Barbarians, The Romany Rye and Cheatahsaurus. And while you’re at it listen to their new matreials a listen too, the soul of The Colour lives on.
