The Curious Incident (UK) releases new single “Money” and announces SA Tour in November/December:
“The Curious Incident ripped the studio apart…Cavey, the lead singer, moves like the love child of Steven Tyler and Rambo.” Elma Smit (MNET Studio 1, South Africa)
“Their relentless and infectious energy and enthusiasm when performing live makes them one of the top live bands to see in London” Leanne Sherman (It’s All Indie, UK)
“Sun-kissed, hook-laden melodies” Keith Ames (The Musician’s Union, UK)
The Curious Incident (UK) is the Alternative Pop embodiment of that roller coaster feeling in your belly! A band of multinationals wearing their hearts on their sleeves; their music has a little RHCP, a little Sting, a little Winehouse, a little Bruno Mars and a lot more thrown in depending on the weather. They have supported some of their heroes including The Zombies and have been lucky enough to play in the UK, Switzerland and Canada. The band had their first SA tour in 2012.
Good news for SA fans is that The Curious Incident will be back here in November/December to introduce their new EP: “Penny Lonesome”. Their wickedly tongue in cheek single – “Money” – will be going out to SA radio in the next few days.
Listen to Money here: https://soundcloud.com/the-curious-incident/money
The EP will consist of 4 news songs, as well as some bonus tracks: Money: Tongue-in-cheek teasing of the lyrics of some of the band`s favourite modern artists Aloe Blacc and Sam Smith; The Hunt: An eclectic and somewhat unexpected style mash with a positive blow-out chorus best suited to a Caribbean jump around; Diane:
A Tale of youthful love in a school-time crush that’s bloomed into an Elvis-approved marriage; Please Don’t Say: Perfect for telling that special someone (lover, friend, politician) to shut the hell up.
The unusual thing about the band members is that they represent four countries: a diverse bunch of great musicians that came together to see the rest of the world stage by stage!
Cavey Roberts @caveyroberts
(vocals & guitar) – representing South Africa and The Netherlands
Mirko Piconese @mirkopiconese
(lead guitar) – representing Italy
Dan Bowery @dmbowery
(bass) – representing England

When not writing and playing:
Cavey is a Jack The Ripper tour guide and sober bar crawl host.
Diaz makes sure that the Indonesian Airforce has planes to fly.

Mirko mashes up Flight of the Bumble Bee with Iron Maiden on classical guitar.
