Indie rockers Born Cages has released the video for the song “Don’t Look Back” on FILTER. This song is off of the band’s The Sidelines EP. “Don’t Look Back” was co-directed by Brooks Jones (P.O.D., Eve 6) and Bill Stepanoski (Franz Ferdinand, Yellow Dogs). Vice Noisey describes the music as a “blend of 80s-influenced synth/guitar work and modern pop-rock sounds” and Filter called the EP “Spellbinding.” The band has also announced new tour dates including SXSW (tour dates below).
Born Cages released The Sidelines EP on Washington Square, an imprint formed by Razor & Tie. The label boasts such acts as The Hold Steady, Augustana and the UK rock band Deaf Havana.
The Sidelines EP (on the iTunes Store HERE) was produced by Jon Kaplan (Walk The Moon) and Olivier Straus (Arctic Monkeys, Matt & Kim) at Mission Sound in Brooklyn, NY. Born Cages will release their debut full length album later this year. On the new album the band taps into a boundless style that encompasses arena-size energy and folk-inspired melody and song craft. As a result, the group’s debut full-length walks a fine line between timeless rock grandeur and artful indie alternative. A balance that seems gracefully concocted yet flows naturally by the band’s collaboration with their producers.
Blackbook raves, “More than a decade after the riff-heavy heyday of The Strokes, The Vines, The White Stripes, The Hives, and many other bands that put the word “the” before a plural noun, we may be ready for another bout of ripping revivalism… savage four-piece Born Cages, certainly makes that argument.”
