It feels like this moment should have happened a long time ago. The Manchester-based five-piece have been one of the hottest tips in new music for more than two years now, and after a rocky 2017 which saw them wrongly caught up in the sexual assault scandals of that year, the band are looking to the future once again as they unveil their long-awaited and highly-anticipated debut album 'Nihilistic Glamour Shots', a record that will truly cement them as one of the year's great innovators.
Produced by The Coral's James Skelly alongside Rich Turvey, which will make perfect sense when you hear the opener 'Preach To The Converted', this new album likes to mix up the band's known style of irreverent post-punk with a more darker flurry throughout. Much like how The Horrors sounded in their infancy, Cabbage have instilled an almost gothic approach to their sound, which not only makes for a gloriously diverse collection but also sets them apart from pretty much everything else around at the moment.
Despite everything that has happened to them in their brief career so far, they have still managed to come through with an exceptional debut release. Intriguing and captivating throughout, this band will surely find themselves back on people's lips where they belong once again.
