Taken from the critically acclaimed album Tell Me I’m Pretty the band are looking to further cement their new credentials as a sharper than ever indie rock and roll band with the forthcoming release of ‘Cry Baby’.
Out on Columbia Records on Good Friday (25th March), Cage The Elephant have matured somewhat since their early inception as drug-addled garage monsters with heavy riffs and dark l;yrics. Although the statements may still be true they have added a sense of guile and craftsmanship to make aficiandos allow a little more air time.
‘Cry Baby’ is testament to this, landing near the blues and garage section the track shows off an impressive degree of control, giving enough oomph to get the pistons firing but never too much to burn out the clutch. Check out the tour video for a little light relief.
