Hailing from the shores of the North East coast, Cape Cub has just released ‘Come Around’ today (February 16).
Cape Cub attaches stunning landscapes in your head whilst listening to ambitious indie pop with a soulful twist.
‘Come Around’ follows up from last years singles Flowers and Searchlight from the Marske-by-the-Sea singer and producer as he builds up recognition from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Radio X’s John Kennedy, as well as millions of streams through Spotify and Apple Music.
His most personal and introspective track to date, Chad Male, the man behind Cape Cub, explains: “It’s tough to know where to start with ‘Come Around’… it almost feels too personal to talk about so freely.”
He continues, “If you’ve ever seen a loved one in a hospital bed, or close to the end, this one is for you. It’s about watching a person you love slowly fade away, and spending every day desperately hoping they’re not gonna become a victim to the cards they’ve been dealt.
“It’s a time and place where every one of that person’s virtues come to the fore and you realise you just can’t lose them. When every memory you’ve ever had of them feels more visceral with each day.”
Chad spent the first half of 2017 setting up his own studio in Middlesbrough’s Grade II listed former Post Office as part of the House Of Blah Blah creative space, before retreating into the second half of the year to carve his way forward. With a new set, a new live line-up and a renewed focus, Chad is taking his live band back out on the road in February 2018.
