Strange Cages are an upcoming psychedelic rock band from Brighton. A band who wear their hometown on their sleeve, their sound is a cocktail of influences ranging from the scuzz of The Stooges to the surf rock of The Beach Boys. When you listen to them, it feels like you’re time travelling back to the 60s, but at the same time, there’s a fresh modern take that feels invigorating.
Strange Cages have received a tremendous amount of exposure from the likes of Clash Magazine, Q, and BBC Radio 1, and released a new song this week, ‘Hypothalamus Blues’ through Vallance Records. The track oozes coolness, the reverberated fuzzy guitars are reminiscent of the perfect road trip. It’s a six-minute epic with a pace that gets the heart racing, while the twisting guitar lines keep things fresh and exciting.
It has a momentum that doesn’t let up, throwing curveballs left, right, and centre, and you feel that as 2018 progresses, things are only going to get better for them.
‘Hypothalamus Blues’ is released on the 16th February through Vallance Records.
