MEET: The Cabrons

New Single: Humanise OUT NOW

What inspired you as an artist?

Our inspirations are very different with each member of the band from rock to 80’s pop and funk to metal we all have different music tastes and inspirations that take hold of our music making it sound different to your bread and butter rock band which can be heard throughout all of our music. 

What is your process for preparing to perform live? Do you have any Diva demands?

we’re a very laid back band when preparing to perform. When we gig we don’t follow a specific process we’ll get sound check out the way get the set lists sorted have a laugh and a joke and play out music. Setting out rules before gigs that we have to do takes the fun out of what we do as we want to have as much fun as the crowd when performing.

Where do you feel you fit into the music landscape?

We fit in the musical landscape as a local band dreaming big things, weather or not this happens 

What are your favourite musical genres, and are there any you dislike?            

Our favourite genres are classic rock, funk, 80’s pop, punk rock and everything in between we don’t dislike most music very open minded in that sense. 

Is there a story behind the your name?

Not a lot too it, we were spit balling ideas and “Cabrons” came to mind as it mean goat or bastard depending which way you look at it in Spanish which we thought was rather fitting. 

What would you say is your greatest strength as an Artist?

Our greatest strength as a band would be how easy it is to get ideas across for new songs and how well they come together, most are the backbones of songs our singer has created a few years ago and the rest are all small ideas for a riff or an intro that we jam out to create songs. 

What would you say is your greatest weakness as an Artist?

Our weakness would probably be lack of equipment to make new noises and sounds. 

What can fans expect from your new single `Humanise `

You can expect a high octane bluesy ballad of inspirations of blues to more modern sounds in how the song plays out. Put your blues shoes on and have a dance around where ever you are!

What music artist would you say have influenced your work?

A lot of different inspirations were cooked into this song the guitar following the singing as more of a “backing singer” which I took from Jimmy Page, a lot of other blues and rock influences with the power of punk to give it an upbeat momentum. 

Who would you most like to collaborate with artistically?

We haven’t really thought about collaborating yet, but a big band would be cool to work with brass instruments, keys for a smooth funkadelic sound. 

What was your worst performance?

Worst performance has got to be at the Yorkshireman in Sheffield think 5 people turned up for the whole gig which we’re friends who’d heard us before, the PA and equipment supplied wasn’t the best and we were all stressed and started making mistakes whilst playing. Good thing nobody came in the end. 

What was the most difficult obstacle you have ever faced and how did you overcome it?

Our biggest obstacle to date would still be when our original bassist left, asking around to see if anyone would join and have a few months of being unsettled to whether or not we could continue but our drummer new of a guy who is our new sexier more ginger bassist Cain and we wouldn’t swap him for the world!

What is your creative process when making music. Do you work with others or is there just you?

We work together when creating music, jam out the outlines for the song once lyrics have been written or go in without lyrics and add write them after if the song takes an unexpected turn rhythm wise. 

Where do you see your musical career in 10 years?

10 years from now I hope we’re still going, maybe going for the big time, it’s all swings and roundabouts at the moment and we’re happy doing what we’re doing so far and hopefully we can maintain it and turn it into something bigger than we would ever think.
