Today Brighton’s ​Strange Cages ​share ​‘Glitter & Ash’​- the explorative second single from their imminently-arriving debut album ​Pop Therapy, due out in collaboration with esteemed promoters and psych-rock connoisseurs ​Acid Box ​this Friday (​13th of September​).

Listen to Glitter & Ash here –

Sounding something like a face-melting ​Nick Cave ​ballad, the 6 minute track sees the group drifting away from their previously favoured garage rock roots. Rampant guitars are replaced by shimmering synthesizers, spaced-out bass lines and heavy-grooving drums as vocalist Charlie McConnochie​croons earnestly above the mix. Progressing towards an almighty outro of ​Pink Floyd​-esque proportions, ​‘Glitter & Ash’​ is an intriguing cut from the foursome that promises an exciting and fresh direction on ​Pop Therapy.

McConnochie​ explains:

“It feels good to slow things down and show a different side of us. We think it’s the best song we’ve written so far and is perhaps best enjoyed with a late night deep bath.”
