Cave Of Swimmers Posts New Video For “The Prince Of The Power Of The Air”

With the recent release of “Reflection,” Cave Of Swimmers is now dropping a brand new music video for lead single “The Prince Of The Power Of The Air,” available below. “The Prince Of The Power Of The Air” was shot and directed by Orlando-based artist Maz Armageddon.

Ex-Metallica member Jason Newsted comments on the band: “As musicians, COS are top-notch, naturally gifted players… As a band, they could go toe to toe with any of the decent up & coming bands that are currently performing live at popular European festivals. As a collection of sounds and songs in the heavy vein, orchestrated & performed by two people (live or in studio); Cave Of Swimmers are truly unique in their creativity & execution, and… Their name can now be shouted and screamed in the same breath as Royal Blood & Deap Vally!!! Cave Of Swimmers warrant a new sound classification… if there is to be one; PROAGGRESSIVE MUSIC!!!”

Vocalist & guitarist G.E. Perez also commented on the band’s influences: “As individuals, it may sound clichéd, but our influences are certainly very eclectic. Toro plays in jazz groups, I play Flamenco guitar… I also have a whole new appreciation for the piano. I love Jaco and Wes too. Having said that, when we come together in a room, what comes out is what we listened to when we were in school, which is rock n’ roll. We also love 80’s and early 90’s merengue. As far as bands; everything… all the usual suspects, from AC/DC to ZZ Top.”

This is the first time in the history of the band that we have created music with no reference points and as a result, this is our most stark, intimate and emotional album.”
