Premiere: A Bad Cavalier – ‘I’m a Wreck’


Ex-Panama Kings and current ASIWYFA man Niall Kennedy has been keeping himself occupied with his solo project, ambient outfit A Bad Cavalier. Debut E.P. ‘Ex Libris’, released in 2014, was self-penned, and self-performed, before Kennedy assembled a fearsome line-up, comprised of an all-star cast, including members of Ed Zealous, Hornets, Rams Pocket Radio, and Wonder Villains.

With some heavyweight supports under their belt during initial live excursions lending them some hefty momentum, the lads unveil follow-up single ‘I’m a Wreck’, available for streaming below, and premiering exclusively with The Thin Air.

“A supergroup of sorts, the five piece’s mix of ambient-post rock was distinctly more My Morning Jacket than their set up suggests. Blending well positioned synths with hard riffs and mountainous choruses, A Bad Cavalier prove to be so much more interesting than some of the current alt-rock landscape… the audience loved it and rightly so. As first impressions go, this sounded huge.” – BBC ATL
