Caveman are a five-piece from New York that are in no way related to the awful ’80s film of the same name starring Ringo Starr and Dennis Quaid. However, Caveman are responsible for “In The City,” an especially pretty track we heard earlier this year. Now comes another single from their self-titled follow-up to 2011’s CoCo Beware, the slow burning “Over My Head.” While “Head” begins in a darker place than the sunny pop of “City,” the new track’s moody guitars eventually give way to a gorgeous chorus that doesn’t sound too far from something Victoria Legrand might sing. It all builds up to the final minute of the song — a looping coda that you just want to go on forever. Check the song out below, and come back tomorrow for our Progress Report with the band.
