Savage Cabbage – Waves EP

By Charlie Anderson

3.5 stars out of 5

Rarely do EP’s exude a sense of completion as Savage Cabbage’s Waves does. The five-song release embodies a sense of story, introducing a spacey, indie venture into crescendoing, staccatoed psychedelia in “Moral Disdain” before drifting towards something of a buoyant, danceable desperation, pleading “Come Back to Me.” Keaton Nalenzy’s bass-driven nostalgia then takes over before letting Collin Orr (guitar) and Nathan Sonnenberg (drums) go all out in “No Hope To Believe,” the final, nearly ominous push towards rock n’ roll of the EP. Waves is a release of the level of a band well into their career, with years of maturity and experience — something quite unexpected from a trio only months out of high school. As the band continues honing in on their musicianship in the Mecca of Nashville, we can only patiently await the next project from Savage Cabbage.
