Secret Sounds is delighted to announce that UK musician/producer Cavetown is heading to Australia in February 2024, set to grace stages in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane with his extraordinary live show.
Leading a peaceful but massive assault on the official soundtrack of his generation, Cavetown sneaks into headphones and homes through the power of his songs. Sometimes he enters through a suggested YouTube video, sometimes through TikTok and sometimes in collaboration with another artist such as beabadoobee or chloe oriondo. From the general to the particular: his irresistible pastel-coloured pop explains the contrasts of the gen-z zeitgeist, but also those of a host of unique and personal stories happening in post-adolescent bedrooms all over the planet.
Since self-releasing his debut single ‘This is Home’ in 2015 at just 16 years of age, Cavetown aka Robin Skinner, has proven the disarming power of exposing his most deeply hidden thoughts and feelings, steadily amassing his devoted following.
On his new album worm food, Cavetown delivers his most elaborately realized body of work to date, shaping his idiosyncratic storytelling into songs that ultimately give voice to our own most intimate emotions.
The follow-up to his 2021 EPMan’s Best Friend, worm food arrives as Cavetown’s latest full-length since his major-label debut Sleepyhead, a 2020 release that inspired NME to hail him as a “bedroom pop hero building worldwide community.”
As with all his output, Skinner produced worm food on his own, holed up in his garage and infusing his understated alt-pop with a powerful new vitality and with his live set, with full band, firmly in mind. “It was fun to imagine how something might come to life onstage, and to think about how I might interact with the audience at different moments.”
Currently performing headline dates across Europe after a run of premium festivals such as Primavera Sound, Glastonbury, Rock Werchter and Montreux Jazz Festival across the Euro Summer, Cavetown’s Australian tour dates are not to be missed!
