Cavo

The Painful Art of Letting Go
Artwork

St Louis modern rock outfit Cavo have been doing the rounds for quite a while now. Their 2002 e.p ‘A Space To Fill’ hinted at the potential of the band giving a taste of things to come. Niftily produced by Modern Day Zero’s Gertken and Rich Criebaum Cavo’s debut album hits a rich vein of hooky modern hard rock with introspective lyrics and contrasting light and shade. Imagine a mix of Foo Fighters with perhaps a hint of British underachievers Rooster, emphasised perfectly on opener ‘Waiting For The Silence’ or the delicious ‘Gone’. ‘Painful Art’ and ‘Disappear’ are a couple of gems that make this album worthwhile but to be brutally honest there isn’t really a filler in sight. With enough edgy guitar to appeal to the hard rock fraternity and enough radio friendly melody to induce airplay Cavo have hit on a formula that has the ability to win over fans whichever genre they favour. It never ceases to amaze me that bands of this quality remain unsigned as a result of the gross ignorance of the major labels.
