Caged Animals

#sxsw #CagedAnimals


Listen to Teflon Heart

Caged Animals is the bedroom psych-pop project of New Yorker, Vincent Cacchione. After being hit by a truck, while working as a weed-delivery man in Manhattan, Cacchione traded his mangled-car in for his first laptop, and began producing these atmospheric, electro-infused, pop gems.

Initially discovered by tastemaker bloggers' Transparent, after releasing a self-titled cassette tape, the Caged crew were promptly signed to London's Lucky Number Music. Since Spring 2010 Caged Animals have released a steady stream of music online, culminating in the release of winter 2012's "Eat Their Own"

Already praised by The Guardian, Stereogum, Dazed And Confused, The Sunday Times, Brooklyn Vegan, YVYNYL, & The New Yorker, “Eat Their Own," is a set of songs which are tender even as they are painful, beautiful yet often emotional, all of which belie their humble origins, being recorded at Cacchione’s home in Bushwick, Brooklyn, at “all hours of the day and night”.

Having already performed locally at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom, Music Hall of Williamsburg & internationally throughout Europe, the UK, and even Iceland, the live show offers a further expansion of the Caged Animals mindset and is something of a family affair. The live band consists of Cacchione’s French-Canadian partner, Magali Charron, a classically trained violinist, as well as his talented little sister, Talya, and one of his oldest friends, Pat Curry). Cacchione promises that the live show will “create a true spectacle. I’m very confident in our abilities to incite the love-in, and leave both audience and band in a better place.” And why should we try to fight such love?
