After a subtle bass line and resounding near-surf guitar melody, Cage The Elephant's phenomenal new single "Come A Little Closer" starts to seep in. It's an artfully crafted pastiche of true alternative nirvana. Whether it's Matt Shultz's gentle verses or the warm guitar hum of Brad Shultz and Lincoln Parish, this is everything that daring and divine rock 'n' roll is all about. Evocations of The Pixies, Failure, and The Smiths echo, but this is undoubtedly a Cage The Elephant affair.
Journalists and fans decry and lament the so-called "death of rock 'n' roll", but "come a little closer" and see it living and fucking breathing in Cage the Elephant.
If this is any indication, we could be hearing the rock record of 2013.
