Our friend Eric Power made beautiful videos for "The Archer" & "City Lights".
"The band harnesses an energy that keeps it sounding fresh and vigorous, the way punk rock should."
"The songs cry out for crowd sing-a-longs, folks running around in circles, or the look of accomplishment once you’ve finally assembled your IKEA dresser"
"...Grunge-textured bass is trampled by keyboard melodies, giving pop an edge...It’s the mix of gritty guitar riffs and catchy lyrics that allows for the In Cadeo fan-base to consist of both high school girls and mosh-pit enthusiasts."
"The band's sound takes us back to the 90s grunge movement... muddy guitars with vocals that take on more of a pop aesthetic...They eclectically blend melodramatic grunge rock with radio friendly riffs and the end result is a very powerful one."

"Making Our Graves delivers heavily layered anthemic songs that display a variety of influences from Elliot Smith to The National and The Wedding Present...this first offering from In Cadeo is an example of smart indie-pop that refuses to compromise."
" In Cadeo alternate between brash and restrained, but their best feature is the ability to turn a phrase, then reverse and re-engineer it. The band packages intelligent lyrics with angular, driving, catchy rock arrangements, a rare talent indeed."
"...Coming on like a more bombastic version of The National..."
"Layers, builds, dynamics… they make me lose track and run red lights."
“In Cadeo has crafted a sound that is as much catchy indie pop as it is grunge infused with alternative elements from the 80’s and 90’s. All members offer up something unique to the mix that makes for great post-rock anthem material.”
“Travis Tonn transformed himself into a beast with a bass, playing with a looseness that contrasted well with Scott’s concentrated demeanor….The band’s manic style left the audience pulsing in anticipation for each song’s climax…Dan Neustadt belted harmonies with one foot on the pedals and the other in the air. Scott trembled in a well-tamed seizure, bringing his guitar to his lips as Pete Sustarsic’s drumming built to a monumental cathartic release, leaving the audience in a state of utter ‘fuck yeahs.’”
“In Cadeo performed an energetic set in the cramped, hot basement of Lit Lounge. Their performance was reminiscent of classic new york bar band The Figgs…The drummer, Pete Sustarsic, beat up the drums like they owed him money, and Bassist Travis Tonn was in lock step. Travis and Jared played off each other like the best guitar-bass combos, and, most importantly, the mood was fun...”
In Cadeo's band members all played in other Brooklyn bands - The Hold Steady, Demander, The Spies, Oberhofer, Franz Nicolay & Major General, World/Inferno, The Danglers - and have shared stages with Art Brut, Wyclef, Nicole Atkins, The Heartless Bastards, Ra Ra Riot, The Constantines, Cymbals Eat Guitars and more.
In Cadeo played their last show in 2011. Members now play in Northern Bells.
