Caracara has always had ambitions past Philadelphia. They could have stemmed from the proj- ect’s genesis: the implosion of former bands, the impact of long-distance communication and travel in relationships, the inevitability of experimentation and expansion. Styles and symbols seem to shift throughout their debut LP Summer Megalith, alternating from shimmering indie to whispers of neo-folk before relishing in the cathartic push of post-rock. This fluidity introduces a band with no point of origin, built from the mysterious clamor of noise as much as they are inspired by it.
On their latest EP Better, Caracara continues to push boundaries. Produced by Memory Music founder & Philadelphia’s own Will Yip, these three songs take all of the cathartic energy of the band’s previous releases and focus them into the best three songs they’ve ever made.
