Heart in a Cage (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

This is a cover of a Strokes song, but I have to admit that I haven’t heard the original. I really can only judge this act by this tune, but given that sampling, I’d put them under prog rock.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2016  Volume 2 at

Track by Track Review
Heart in a Cage

This comes in textural and almost symphonic. After a time acoustic guitar rises up to create the melodic backdrop for the vocals. Those vocals are moody and subdued. The song is dark and does get a parental advisory on the lyrics. The song has a number of changes, but is basically a folk music based number with dark alternative and modern prog textures.

(Editor's Note - Music Street Journal is set up for the allocation of albums, not singles - particularly not one-song singles. So, in the instances, like this one, where we've covered single song releases, we've had to make some adaptations for formatting. In the case of this one, just imagine both track review and overall review reading as one set of copy. )
