Solid Supposed (Featuring Ruth Blake)

Jul 14, 2021

Released as the B-side of our current single ‘Burst Through The Borders’, Solid Supposed, (which originally came out on the More Lie Deep EP) is given a total revamp with brand new lead vocals by Ruth Blake. Her haunting, multi-layered delivery perfectly resonates with the dream-like, otherworldly theme of the song’s lyrics. Bathed in distortion and delay, Blake’s voice soars then whispers its way through the slow, Lynchian lullaby, accompanied by Caulbearers’ signature horns, strings and live breakbeats.

The track is available on all digital platforms including our HERE on our Bandcamp page for high-quality downloads in the format of your choice.


“Caulbearers and Ruth Blake channel The Specials on ‘Solid Supposed’ single.”

Amplify Music Magazine

“A smoky seduction in a jazz lit serenade. It has a seemingly reserved gait but one revealing its fevered sway with true virulence and soulful dexterity. The earnest call of sax…its flames melancholic yet invigorating and a delicious companion to the beauty and passion escaping Blake’s vocals chords.”

RingMaster Review

“Solid Supposed’ has that sax led duality of pop and jazz that harks mid 80’s meets the rabid 20’s. What a mix and mash.”
