The Belle Jar- Union Station
Mar 5, 2014
There is something about a band, or musical group that
comes out of New Jersey that brings a different spin on
anygenre — it must be the water. Caged Animals didn’t miss
thememo on their first, Eat Their Own.
A whining keyboard and melodious bass intertwine to expose “Teflon Heart,” a song
prevalent with the goofy lyrics that can come out of lead singer, Vincent Cacchione’s mouth. L
yrically, Cacchione could be compared to Of Montreal’s “Our Riotous Defects.” The song is the
epitome of Caged Animals trying to mesh chillwave with electro-pop in a hazy, yet upbeat
“Hazy Girls,” on the other hand, is a whimsical track heavy on a washed-out sound.
The words still portray simplistic ideas and images, but this time, they’re more relatable. Upon
listening, your lids may get heavy on your head in which case I would suggest laying back, and
taking the music in.
Listen to "Teenagers in Heat" -
