CD Review: The Kavanaghs “Pop Power”

Through its history, Rock And Roll has had a long and wild path that has made its way into many different cultures. While England and America are the most widely accepted locations for where new music comes from, countries such as Germany and Canada have also added their share of history to the music genre. And with more and more people becoming familiar with the sound of the music, Rock and Roll has found its way into almost every country on the planet, including down in Argentina. It’s in Argentina where you find the band The Kavanaghs, a band of four musicians (Tiago Galíndez on Vocals/Bass/Piano, Seba Cairo on Vocals/Guitars, Diego Vázquez on Guitars/Backing Vocals, Franco Barbieri on Drums) who have been making their own brand of Rock and Roll music for years.

Over the years, The Kavanaghs have created their own music that has been largely influenced by the sound of the British Invasion and then the American response that followed it. For their influences, The Kavanaghs have mentioned bands like The Beatles, Badfinger and The Raspberries (among others) as those bands that have inspired them the most. And when listening to the music of The Kavanaghs, you can most definitely hear each of these influences coming through.

CD Review: The Kavanaghs “Love Conquers Pain”

The Argentinean pop/rock band The Kavanaghs came together and started created music with a very apparent nod to the British Invasion; most importantly, their sound had a lot of The Beatles in it as an influence. A few years ago, the band took their British Invasion-influenced music and created their first album, 2009’s self-titled release.

Since that time, The Kavanaghs has changed slightly. While guitarist/ singer Ale Pin, lead guitarist Diego Vazquez and multi-instrumentalist Tiago Galindez still make up the majority of the band, Seba Cairo has replaced Julio Leidi on drums.

And while the makeup of the band has changed slightly, The Kavanaghs have done even more, as their sound has more substance than it did back in 2009. While their sound still has some flavor from the British Invasion of the 1960’s, they have incorporated a lot of the styling of music that has been created since that time as well. The new album from The Kavanaghs, Love Conquers Pain, brings their sound a lot closer to today’s radio formats and playlists.
