Dirty, nasty thrills - that's Strange Cages.
Brighton based, the three piece have a neat line in gritty garage rock thrills, filtered through a wiry post-punk consciousness. It's the sound of '65, but created in an environment very much drawn from '14.
Feral, psychotic guitar music, the band's live shows - all sweat, grit, blood and spilled pints - have found them blazing a trail at smutty venues across the south coast and beyond.
New cut 'Desert' finds Strange Cages managing to rein in their more chaotic instincts for a supreme studio cut. Produced by Theo Verney, it clocks in at just under three minutes with the three piece evidently deciding that their work here is done.
A times sparse, the gritty vocals are matched by razor blade guitars which flit between The Sonics and The Birthday Party, Link Wray and The Cramps.
