Locking My Door is as honest and relatable as they come - the protagonist lamenting the shortcomings of the present day, preferring to stay indoors and yearn for an unreachable past.
Having released their impressive début track Do You Wonder Why through Vivid Riot Records last year, the boys’ latest single, Ideal Girl, is busy receiving regular airplay from a host of radio stations and is sure to capture the attention of anyone who catches it on the airwaves.
Following support slots with Scouting For Girls and Professor Green, and last month’s riotously-received whistle stop tour with Newport’s The Hearts and Merthyr Tydfil’s new favourite sons Pretty Vicious, The Cradles are fast earning themselves a solid reputation as one of South Wales’ most exciting live prospects.
Catch them at any of their string of forthcoming dates, in venues such as Pentyrch’s Acapela Studios and Pontypool’s The Dragonffli, and you’ll know with no delay that you've witnessed something special.
