Formed during a cold winter in Southern England, Cavaliers came together through a mutual love of pub lunches and seventeenth century monarchs. The outcome has resulted in a collection of infectiously catchy indie jaunts.
Taking the upbeat, driving melodies of Two Door Cinema Club and Bombay Bicycle Club, whilst incorporating a finger-tapping math rock tinge to the sound, Cavaliers are receiving plaudits after each and every stage they grace. This includes supporting King Charles in Exeter and Southampton, as well as shows with Johnny Borrell, TTNG and Butserfest Festival.
Debut EP Gazella was released April 2014, with the track “If I had 50p for every time you stabbed me in the back, I’d be looking at least £8.60” receiving airplay from Melita Dennett on BBC Introducing – The South. Another track from the EP was also featured on BBC 6 Music. This Mini-Tour celebrates the release of a studio video for live favourite ‘Blind Corner’, an offcut from 2014 debut release Gazella.

The band have been gigging extensively and have supported the likes of Catfish And The Bottlemen, The Telescreen, The Birthday Suit (Idlewild) and The Rifles in the past few months.
Convention is not really a word used or even uttered in the world of NudyBronque, as Tom Robinson from BBC Radio 6 affirms they are “Not just another band with unfashionable hair”. Their 2014 Moondog EP was full of kitchen sink drama but turned the mundane into the magical, no song ever quite going where you think it will and yet still hooking you in from the start
