Brighton three-piece, Strange Cages released their 6-track EP, The Cracks yesterday and I’m here to tell you that its is well worth the wait (if, like me, you have been waiting for this). If you haven’t experienced the psychedelic fury of the Strange Cages yet, this is a recommended listen!
No stranger to the LP Blog, this garage-rock trio never fail to put a little shiver and shake into my days whenever I blast out their crazy, gritty punk-fuelled, psych sounds!
Influenced by the classic sounds of the grand old garage days of the 60’s, the Strange Cages are influenced by the post-punk sounds of 13th Floor Elevators, The Stooges and Television to name a few and state that, “We love music that’s primal and menacing, anything twisted with a touch of evil. We are a garage/psych band with cruel intentions”.…hmm, sound right up my street!!
Today I am sharing the wild and lively sound of the EP’s title track, it’s one of the more fiercely rowdy songs on the EP and showcases their energised sound perfectly. This is angst-driven, rowdy, raw garage-punk at its finest…. Check it out above.
