STRANGE CAGES VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE ‘PONY’, OUT 20TH JULY, PREMIERED THIS WEEK
“A sultry and hypnotic beast” – NME
“Brighton based, the three piece have a neat line in gritty garage rock thrills, filtered through a wiry post-punk consciousness. It’s the sound of ’65, but created in an environment very much drawn from ’14.” – Clash
“Sounds like the product of one of Josh Homme’s infamous drug-fueled desert production sessions.” The Line of Best Fit
“A wad of wonky-legged riffs and thirsty vocals.” – Q
“Our favourite single this week!” Artrocker
“STRANGE CAGES sound like they’ve been plucked from a scuzzy dive bar in California circa 1967” – Gigslutz
Strange Cages have just emerged from their extensive touring schedule, where they supported the likes of Acid Baby Jesus, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, The Warlocks and White Lung, to announce the release of new single ‘Pony’ on 20th July, with their debut EP coming out later this year.
A self-proclaimed “garage/psych band with cruel intentions”, Strange Cages may hail from Brighton but their vintage pop-soaked garage sound carries all the same rawness and sexuality of a 60’s American teenage rebellion.
Somewhere between the cocky swagger of Blue Cheer, The Stooges and the mind-expanding sounds of The 13th Floor Elevators, ‘Pony’ is equally raucous, bluesy and playful, with a garage rock feel that serves as the perfect follow up to their critically acclaimed track ‘Desert’, released last year and cementing Strange Cages as one of the brightest new talents emerging from the Brighton music scene.
‘Pony’ is out 20th July on Strong Island Recordings.
