Los Angeles has long boasted a vibrant underground country scene and now, Cave Flowers appear ready to make their mark. “Best Lonesome Friend,” the first teaser track from the band’s eponymous debut album (out January 31, 2020) embraces the spirit of the California sound by melding dreamy atmospheres with a colorful and punchy brand of Americana to deliver a tender country-rock tune for the open road.
Even with its laid back West Coast vibes, the band’s sound is anything but faint. The track’s breezy melody is supported by the rhythm and intertwining of hard rock instrumentation played with the tenacity of Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s catchiest guitar jams. A blistering electric guitar solo and soulful piano accents help punctuate the song’s gentle refrains, which dwell on the value of finding companionship amid the inevitable solitude that burdens every traveling cowboy.
