Hailing from the City of Atlanta, Vaya’s second EP covers some of the typical indie rock style with a splash of something special on top of a few songs. I Am The Caveman was recorded with Matt Goldman (Underoath, Anberlin) in Atlanta during 2005.
Opening the EP is my favorite track titled “Nebula.” Its back and forth guitars and its almost euro style bounce leads into a fast catchy guitar part. I love the bass and breakdown of the guitars that happens towards the end of the song. This song would be great to hear and see live. Lyrically Vaya keep things moving with lyrics about girls, life, and love. Songs like “Diamond Girls” are a bit more mellow but still retain that indie sound.
I think Vaya could be a lot more then this EP brings them out to be. “Nebula” is hands down a great song and other then that the other songs don’t do them justice besides maybe the lyrics. I hope the band finds their right spot because they know what they are doing and it would be great to hear more from them in the future!
