Welsh indie rock band The Cradles are set to announce their exhilarating sound to the world with the release of their brand new single Ideal Girl out on March 25th via Solva Records.
You can stream Ideal Girl now via The Cradles’ Soundcloud page.
Ideal Girl tackles universal themes of wallowing in self-pity as one blindly searches for love and companionship. The track kicks off with a ‘Misirlou’ style surf-rock guitar riff before building into a undeniably catchy chorus akin to the likes of early Arctic Monkeys and The Libertines. Lead singer Joe Norman’s vocals water tight throughout, as he emotes an almost effortless feeling, whilst still managing to maintain a gritty yet dynamic rock sound.
Having met at school in Cardiff in 2012, The Cradles quickly started to make a name for themselves on the local music scene in Wales, and have now cemented themselves as one of South Wales’ most celebrated acts for 2016. Band members Joe Norman (vocals), Kieran O’Brien (guitar), Luke Haines (bass) and brothers Toby Andrews (guitar) and Declan Andrews (drums) have been praised for their live performances in particular, cutting their teeth and honing their set while supporting the likes of Pretty Vicious and The Bohicas.
