Kentucky band Cage the Elephant perfect a mix of modern rock and a retro Sixties sound for their fourth studio album. Mostly because of the enthusiasm and energy they instill even the most laid back song with. Together since 2006, the band is known for their high energy level during their live shows and their unique sound.
Their live shows show the breadth of their talent and it is wide. They are five guys who come together as one while playing music. Using influences from the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties, Cage the Elephant has managed to come up with a distinct sound of their own. Hailing from Kentucky the band can one moment sound like The Beatles and the next The Pixies. Sounds like a horrible mix but it isn’t; it works very well actually. Maybe we can, for simplicity’s sake, call them garage rock with some surf influence thrown in.Cage the Elephant is just trying to do rock that fits in with today’s messed up world.
