Congratulation to Cage The Elephant on their Grammy winning, on the category Best Rock Album, for ‘Tell Me I’m Pretty’. The tune of the week is the latest release from the album and read below what Rolling Stone wrote about it.
Cage the Elephant tap into the paranoia of Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange with their hallucinatory “Cold Cold Cold” video. Lead singer Matt Shultz directed the clip, which follows a straitjacketed young man through a horrific journey filled with drug injections, creepy masks, dancing nurses, sword swallowing, flexing pectoral muscles and decapitation.
“I think we’re all very prone to subscribe to a safe, surface level pursuit of happiness, keeping our adversities out of sight out of mind, in a way,” Shultz said of the video’s themes in a statement. “We try to fix ourselves to fit into the social norm, and it is so easy to forget that in one way or another, the broken hearted are the beautiful ones.”
The surging surf-rock single highlights Cage the Elephant’s fourth LP, 2015’s Tell Me I’m Pretty. The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach produced the album, encouraging the Kentucky quartet to expand sonically and embrace raw first-takes.
So, turn the volume up & enjoy the Tune Of The Week!
