I can’t believe it’s been a few years since we last partook in some Caged Animals together on IHM. The Brooklyn based indie pop band make a beautiful return on new single Wildflowers, a song which The New Yorker aptly describes as a “hip-hop influenced Velvet Underground”. Wildflowers is weightless charming and melodic divine. On top of the aforementioned sounds, the song also carries a hint of whimsical Modern Mouse but with a brassy richness and a melting sincerity. Wildflowers slow builds upon itself, culminating as a heart warming dazzler.  A new Caged Animals full length is expected to arrive in early 2017, featuring guest appearances from Neutral Milk Hotel’s Julian Koster and avant-alto-saxophonist Chris Aiello. Purchase Wildflowers from Bandcamp.

OFFICIAL VID: Caged Animals – This Summer I’ll Make It Up To You

May 3, 2012

Brooklyn indie pop band Caged Animals are back with this video for This Summer I’ll Make It Up To You, the attention grabbing opening track off their upcoming EP titled This Summer. There’s something wistful and sad in the vocals on the pop track. This is one of those bittersweet tunes, perfect for those long summer days when regrets and the past tug at the back of your mind as you lazily try to forget your troubles. Yet, somehow, even as you take in the sunshine on the beach and laugh earnestly with your friends, an undeniable sadness sits at the very bottom of your heart. And there’s something so beautiful about it.
