Caravels is a five-piece band from Las Vegas, Nevada, who formed in May of 2006. Caravels play an interesting mix of post-hardcore, 90's screamo, and indie/emo. I've been hooked on this band since I heard them back in 2010. Since their inception, the band released a six song EP entitled 'Floorboards' in 2010, a two song self-titled 7" in 2011 and a split LP with Gifts From Enola. 'Lacuna' is the band's debut ten song LP, released via Topshelf Records on March 26th, 2013. For the uninitiated, Caravels play a great style of music that's brooding, atmospheric, heavy, and at the same time soaring, bordering on the melodic at times. Musically, Caravels share a common thread with bands like La Dispute, Defeater, and Pianos Become The Teeth, but with an identity that's all their own. Overall, 'Lacuna' makes for an incredible listen. Highly recommended!
