The Cambiata are an American indie alternative rock band from outside Portland, Maine. The band is composed of Chris Moulton (vocals), Sean Morin (rhodes, piano, guitar, loops), Miguel Barajas (ambient lead guitar, loops), Stan Dzengelewski (bass guitar), and Dan Capaldi (drums, percussion, xylophone). Their music and lyrics are moody, dynamic and filled with tension. They sometimes incorporate strings, horns, and other orchestral instruments into their songs.
Formed in 2004, they originally started out as an experimental screamo band. They incorporated elements of jazz, post-hardcore, metal, and pop into their music sometimes all in one song. In 2006 they released their debut album Into The Night. It was very popular locally especially the song Shards of Pornography. The band went through line-up and style changes and released the Ep To Heal in 2008. To Heal left behind the breakdowns and screams in favor of interesting chord changes, melodies and new and expansive instrumental textures such as strings, horns, and other orchestral instruments.
In 2009 The Cambiata are set to release their self titled album The Cambiata.
