about

Cave Clove Oakland, California

Cave Clove is a indie rock quartet. A wash of soul and tight orchestration create the Cave Clove mood - a rock sound with smoky vocals, lurid harmonies and atmospheric rhythms. With overtones of pop and R&B, Cave Clove takes niche genres and integrates them into the band’s signature sultry tension, with big sound closing in around torch melodies. ... more

Track Name: Still Just As Free
My dreams are not any stranger
than how I make sense of things by day
I seem to remember all of you in oddly human ways
Let me pretend
Oh I see you do not offer me
Do not offer me

I know what sounds good in my ears
He knows what his idols told him
I nurture my delicate baby
We nurture our practices
but do some things that stunt our memories
Let me make roots
Wonder if my remedies live up

And I miss your culture
It’s about letting go to me
I miss the days when I thought you’d love me endlessly
Now I’m content cuz it’s all just as potent
And we’ve all admired the awfulness

The boys show me the bridges, streets of secrets, tell me local history
Nod my head to show them all the interest
but they don’t ever ask me
I can pretend while I’m able
It lives and breathes
the same themes live and breathe
But im still just as free

And I miss your culture
It’s about letting go to me
I miss the days when I thought you’d love me endlessly
Now I’m content cuz it’s all just as potent
And we’ve all admired the awfulness
Track Name: Child At Heart (And In Practice)
I’m still like a child in oh so many ways
more ways than you I’m sure
And that’s why I’ve reached this point
where I am smothered and dampened
In my own skin
Cant even remember what it’s like to be a bird on a wire
Wire in the city, tall post far away from all the hard working people

I need time
It takes me such time
But still look me in the eye and ask more seriously
Don’t hesitate to stop this train cuz folks believe in you
And we that believe all have our own vices
Smothered and dampened in our own ways
I have years and years of undoing to do
and it’s a lonely road to respect
Its two steps forward and two steps back
leaving me where I started
A child at heart and in practice

All we can do is try to make beauty
I feel the tugs on my heart strings so hard
And so selfishly in all directions
I hate what you play
but I cant help but love when my heart strings get tugged
I splurge every day
but it gets me no closer to knowing I’m loved
When lay people work on their bodies so hard I double take it
But they’ve got a kick in the ass from behind
and a spine that can take it
