Climbing Mt. Everest Cale

24 Aug

Everest Cale

Sometimes a band is just meant to be. Everest Cale is one of those bands. Composed of a group of college friends from South Carolina who journeyed north to the Big Apple, Everest Cale came together because of persistence and the joint desire to produce good music. The friends, Brett Treacy (vocals, guitar), Jeremy Kolmin (guitar) and Aaron Nystrup (bass), added drummer Nate Becker and keyboardist/vocalist  Ryan Roets, to round out the rock quintet. Since 2010, Everest Cale has played clean blues-inspired rock with 70’s inspired edginess and noticeable modern sentiments. On Sept. 4, they release their first EP Beast, and in anticipation of the release let’s take a listen to the band’s self-titled single.

The song begin’s with a softly-plucked guitar backing Treacy’s vocals. Treacy’s vocal has an intriguing quality to it. It is noticeably powerful, but it maintains a tenderness that is refreshing. It is recognizable, but original to Treacy. The progression of the song is smooth. One of the most attractive aspects of Everest Cale is that they play a refreshing blend of music that is skillful, organized, and precise. As the band demonstrates with the feedback and rock breakdown at the end of the song, they certainly know how to let loose and “rock out,” but they do that in a mature, unphased way. They are in charge of their music, and that is something that makes for an enjoyable listen.

Everest Cale plays their release show at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 2 (New York) on Sept. 1. I am eager to listen to the rest of the EP.
