The Sky Life are a folk band who incorporate a small amount of post-rock for flavoring through a large scope of various styles that call back to early Wilco, Bon Iver, and Sparklehorse. Caves, the debut album from The Sky Life, demonstrates The Sky Life's ability to craft a rich and original sound while keeping their influences at bay. On top of that, is songwriting that goes through the motions of the hardest times in life with hyperbole that allows for the work to be interpreted however by the listener. Making for a beautiful and engaging listen. If you like folk music with a niche, and a damn good one at that, and you're a fan of the previously aforementioned influences; then Caves is a must listen.
