Win With Caged Animals

Caged Animals is the strangely life-affirming bedroom project of songwriter Vincent Cacchione, a New Jersey-born Italian living in Brooklyn. Known previously for the nearly noir folk-rock of his former band Soft Black, Cacchione carries a strongly traditional gene in his brand of glitch-friendly pop - as inspired by the classic songwriting of Jeff Magnum or John Lennon's solo material as the melancholic R&B twist of James Blake or Frank Ocean, or the perfect fusion of Chad Van Gaalen's raw & pop qualities. New album 'The Land Of Giants' is released September 2nd via Lucy Number.

The optimism of Caged Animals is surmised in the album's opener, 'Too Much Dark': a twinkling, gospel-influenced piece of R&B, fulfilling Cacchione's wider hope for a record that "injects computer-music with something simple and honest." The result of this aspiration is apparent; In The Land Of Giants is a deeply human album, as concerned with the cosmos as it is earth and skin.

Expressive and open, simple, but deep. These are personal songs about friendship and desire with Cacchione's powerfully vulnerable vocals sitting atop a bed of home-grown beats, white noise, chiming synths, and instantly atmospheric ambience. For Cacchione, In The Land Of Giants became an opportunity to do everything that he does best, in one audio space, marrying the sonic experimentation of his love for electronica with the undeniable penchant for lyrical and emotional resonance he developed in Soft Black.
