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).
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 McConnochiecroons 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.
“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.”
