Cathedrals & Cars
Cathedrals and Cars describe themselves as “a three piece acoustic band situated in Suffolk, with a dark lyrical content about mundane occurrences.” The three met each other when they started their Music Technology course at West Suffolk College.
Jack Stevens (Vocals, Guitar & Percussion) and Will Prentice (Guitar & Vocals) met first and found their common interests in music and arts. Will’s contrasting guitar parts and lyrical pessimism combined with Jack’s crooning, howled vocals and similarly darkened poetry, seemed to make their sound. After sharing song ideas they both realized they shared a musical connection and decided to start a band. College friend Jack Hubbard then joined the band. Jack Hubbard (Piano, Organ) plays his instrument with feel to add texture, and compliment the already intimate sound of the material.
They believe in DIY Labels and Distribution, and are focused on a fresh approach to the industry’s currently collapsing traditional method. Free Merchandise has also been issued, and will continue to be produced.
The three have now released the Debut EP, “Sky Lanterns”, available to buy from them directly for £3. Ensure you’re at a gig to get one!
