@CageTheElephant Score Big with “Come A Little Closer”

CAGE THE ELEPHANT “Come A Little Closer”

Call me a newbie here to Cage The Elephant, but the song and video by the Kentucky quintet led by singer Matthew Shultz have caught my ears and eyes this time around.  I think it’s because the sound of “Come A Little Closer” has Cage The Elephant filling a most notable void in alt.rock left by bands that are no longer, such as R.E.M., but with a soulful edge. “Come A Little Closer” sounds like one of those rare alt.rock songs that will turn pop radio ears. The tour video is an intriguing showcase and very reminiscent of the 90’s, leaving one to wonder what the band is like in live performance.  It’s from the band’s recent album Melophobia.
