At once fuzzy and upbeat but also sleepy and cathartic, I had to do some research at first because I had no idea who this one man band Vincent Cacchione was. Libraries were consulted, foreign dignitaries, and some people I am not at liberty to name. But, Caged Animals, it turns out, is Cacchione and a bucket load of ideas, driving him forward, sideways or nowhere in whichever direction his computer experiments take him. Now that Lucky Number have signed him, it might be a mighty impressive coup for both man and label. ‘Girls On Medication’ reverberates with all the apathetic charm of The Strokes circa 2001, the lush warmth of a Best Coast-esque melody, some Lemonheads it is true, and even slurry Britpop vocals that create one of the most refreshingly cool songs I’ve heard all year.
‘Girls On Medication’ is out 4th July on white 7-inch vinyl via Lucky Number (limited to 500 copies).
