 Southampton, England, GBR

A four-piece from Southampton likened by their fans to artists including Bloc Party and Minus the Bear, but their unique blend of indie also touches with several further tastes. The end result is a sound that flawlessly combines the pace and beauty of Interpol with the softer melodies of Brand New.

Biography

Cardinals are a four-piece from Southampton likened by their fans to bands including Bloc Party and Minus the Bear, but their unique blend of indie also touches with several further tastes.

EP Reviews:

"The no frills approach in performance is countered with a musical sentiment that is lavish and colourful, without losing it's sincerity" - mINtSOUTH

"With sparse dreamy vocals and a heavy emphasis on delay pedals, the band have developed a sound that you'd be pushed to find elsewhere" - Audio Addict Magazine

Live Reviews:

"After their seamless and dreamy performance, it won’t be the last time that I hear them. Their song Human Traces was exceptional; Cardinals have developed a sound that is simple and touching" - Punk Prospect

The end result is a sound that flawlessly combines the pace and beauty of Interpol with the softer melodies of Brand New.
After playing their first show in November 2010, Cardinals have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many great bands including This Town Needs Guns, Part Dinosaur, &U&I (ex Blackfish) and Drawings to name a few.
They released their self titled debut EP on March 24th. The EP was partly produced by Neil Kennedy (Burn the Fleet, Our Time Down Here).
On December 1st, Cardinals released their new demo, You & I Both, which is available from their Facebook and Bandcamp pages.
