Symphony Soldier by The Cab on Apple Music

EDITORS’ NOTES

With their second studio album, the Cab steps up their game in songwriting and performance as well as in business — the Las Vegas quintet paid for every nuance of this recording, refusing to owe any money to a record label. “Angel With a Shotgun” opens with a string orchestra and vocal choir padding the foundation of a catchy power-pop tune that’s cleverly disguised as a power ballad. “Bad” tastefully flirts with R&B balladry before segueing into a festive sing-along, sounding a little like Bruno Mars — who co-wrote the following tune “Endlessly.” A sweeping serenade that overflows with sentimental boy-next-door adoration, the song sounds like it was carefully crafted for Valentine mixes and wedding reception first-dances. The Cab balances out this love jam with a playfully raunchy gem, “Animal.” Here, a Justin Timberlake inspired-vocal oozes from the chorus before the band simmers back down into “Intoxicated,” a tune that somehow successfully blends party anthem and love song importing hints of Dangerous-era Michael Jackson. The uplifting “Living Louder” closes the album strongly.

About The Cab

Inspired by groups such as Fall Out Boy and Panic at the Disco, Las Vegas quintet the Cab was founded by then-students Alex DeLeon (vocals) and Cash Colligan (bass) in 2005 after the two met during high school. The duo began recording demos and broadcasting them via MySpace, but it quickly became evident that a complete band would be needed for them to realize their full potential. DeLeon and Colligan recruited Alex Johnson (drums), Alex Marshall (piano), and Ian Crawford (guitar), began playing shows locally, and built up a fan base before sending a demo to Panic at the Disco's Spencer Smith. Smith was so impressed with the band that he helped them sign to the Decaydance/Fueled by Ramen label in 2007. The Cab's debut album, Whisper War, was produced by Matt Squire and released in 2008, followed by several national tours alongside the likes of Hey Monday and the Hush Sound. ~ Katherine Fulton
