The Cabin Project - Video Premiere 'Highways'

Portland-based, orchestral, Indie-pop band, The Cabin Project, unveil a new music video for their song "Highways" off upcoming album "Unfolded". See them at The Doug Fir Friday, June 24th.

The trio that includes founder Katie Sawicki, drummer Zanny Geffel and Rebekah Hanson, a PhD in viola, create intimate and impassioned songs that envelop you, building off anthemic choruses, three-part harmonies, octave pedals, and string sections. 

“We broke the law for the first time to make this video,” said Sawicki. "Highways is a track that truly represents the sound of the album, pulling from influences such as the National and Warpaint. The album was recorded here in Portland at our very own Map Room in SE and was 90% live recording. We really wanted to have that energy of all of us playing off of each other in a beautiful space. After a year of touring these songs, arranging and rearranging, we felt this was the best way to represent our collaboration together. We were so happy with the whole process and working with Josh at the Map Room was especially rewarding."

The band is set to release their latest effort, Unfolded, this Friday, June 24th, 2016 at Doug Fir.  The band describes it as, "an album about despair, loss, hope, freedom, heartache, justice and love.  We hope that our listeners will connect with the words and feelings of this record and believe that it is catharsis for all who have felt these universal feelings within their own journeys through life."

Performing with The Cabin Project are Coco Columbia and Human Ottoman.  Friday, June 24th at Doug Fir Lounge. Tickets $10-$12. Doors 8 pm/Show 9pm. 21+.
