Their slightly retro ’60s sound which they meld with 21st century garage gives The Cradles a warmth and honesty of delivery that always makes them a pleasure to hear.

Their latest track – Denmark Street – is musically reminiscent of the heyday of the namesake in London (England) in its hey day, as the quintet deliver a song wrapped in the sounds of the late sixties.

Denmark Street laments the falling number of live music venues, bubbles of cohesive connections and gritty rock acts in a track that could be applied to many iconic music hubs around the world.

The Cradles – Do You Wonder Why? – Single Review

The Welsh band The Cradles released their début single Do You Wonder Why? through Vivid Riot a couple of days ago.

Opening with the title track the music drifts dreamily into the room to a fanfare of percussion and bass before slowly coalescing in to a sound which builds and gains in munificence as it develops. Scintillating sharpened guitars gleam around the room whilst a vocal, tremulous with sympathy, rounds off the whole piece. A delightful introduction to a band who are able to expose the innards of the context.

The second track You Won’t Find Anyone Else has a mixture of  ’60s pop feel and a Lynchian film score to it. A thriving hive of activity within which The Cradles is able to both pack the two minutes with notes, yet also find the space to develop the drama of the piece.


Sadly the whole thing is over in just four and a half minutes. Yet that brief space of time is filled with music that seems to extend the seconds in which they deliver multifarious textures as the quintet each play an integral part to the build-up of the whole.

Given the début, The Cradles is a band to get to know and enjoy.
