Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly
Quite apart from the eye-catching name, British indie group, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, have caught the attention of music-lovers in general with their unusual lyrics and forays into different sounds.
Created by Sam Duckworth when he was just 18, the group's name was inspired by a video game, but their output is a lot less shallow that such beginnings might suggest. Their debut album, The Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager (2006), had a largely acoustic sound (and was largely recorded in Duckworth's bedroom, as befits all budding teenage popstrels). The follow-up, Searching for the Hows and Whys, used music to delve into difficult contemporary questions and happenings, such as the shooting in Columbine, religious warfare and the nuclear race.
The group have come back together with their latest disc, following Duckworth's decision to take a break from GCWCF in 2011 and try a solo venture, which resulted in his album, The Mannequin. This tour will doubtless feature tunes familiar to the band's fans but also songs from their new record, Maps.
