Cage The Elephant – “Come A Little Closer”

220px-Cage_the_Elephant_MelophobiaThis song has been stuck in my head all day. Cage the Elephant’s raw, gritty sounds are- simply put- organized chaos, and they are simply amazing. They can go from subtle and smooth to absolutely crude and unrestrained, but in the best way possible. The indie rock band has come quite a long way since the release of their debut album, and have cultivated a persona for themselves along the way. Matt Shultz has a beautifully eclectic voice, and it interlocks pretty well with the band’s careening, energetic, almost punk-rock style beats. “Come A Little Closer” has a perfect mix of falsetto and deep, brooding vocals, a combination that always works for me. “Come A Little Closer” is from Cage The Elephant’s third studio album, Melophobia, which released in 2013.
