CD Review by Danielle Boise
With great harmonies that mesh together to create a tragically sexy and seductive soundscape, that is the essence of Cable Car. With a soulful, refreshing sound that reverberates in an electrifying way with the recently released EP Ride, Cable Car distinguishes itself from the pack pop rock musicality.
Ride displays a fresh mix of R&B fused together with a rock pop undercurrent. Cable Car delivers a fascination Ride, utilizing the talents of producer Mike Pappas on the 5-track EP. With a similar sonic quality to mega-star Justin Timberlake, with the swagger of Maroon 5, and throw in a bit of The Script in for good measure, Cable Car generates heat and buzz with Ride.
Ride starts off with the undeniable sexy “Two.Time.Love” then seamlessly transitions into the alchemy of the subtly, sweet “Song That Groove.” Nathan Mott’s voice ripples with unadulterated quells of emotion on “You’re Killing Me,” this will be a track that you will want to play on infinite loop. “It’s You” sounds like a lullaby with a gentle soothing quality, as it stands as the anti-love song of the batch. “Wait For Me” rounds out the EP with a bit of a bluesy flair and desire, as Mott insistently asks “Will you wait for me?” in a sultry manner. With the only response that could part from your lips, is yes.
Ride is consistent, fun and sexy as hell. I look forward to seeing what else Cable Car has up their sleeves in the future.
