When Slow Caves puts out a track, the Colorado music scene collectively gazes on in awe. Their first release since last year’s single “Walk in the Park,” Slow Caves has returned with “Before I Leave,” a ‘90s post-psychedelic stroll through the minds of the Mueller brothers. As a song it parallels how we’re feeling, now that things are returning to normal: purposeful, sullen, energetic, contemplative, and downright ready to rock.
Cleverly produced, it’s a positive and creative new course for the band. Stepping out of the dream pop genre and showing signs of something different, it’s a good time to be a Slow Caves fan.
