Brooklyn’s Caged Animals have announced the release of their second album later this year, and the first single off it, ‘Cindy + Me’, has recently surface the web. Written and produced by the outfit’s mastermind Vincent Cacchione, the song is built around a sample from Raymond Scott’s ‘Cindy Electronium’.
Here’s what Cacchione said about it:
“’Cindy + Me’ is my attempt at capturing some sinister version of the adolescent dream. It’s an outlaw love song, based around a sample from synthesizer-pioneer Raymond Scott’s “Cindy Electronium.”
In the song, I’m a crazed teenager in love, running away from home with the girl and some twisted view of the future. We’ve got her father tied up in the house, a smoldering corpse, we’ve got the cash, “We’re living on top of the world,” and we’re going to get away with it.”
