Took about three weeks, but hey, something finally came along that knocked “Love is Alive” off the repeat train on my Spotify.

Last Friday, New York-based, “synth-driven indie/alt rock unpopular pop” band, Born Cages, released its EP/mini album Exit Signs in a Burning Building, and it made for the perfect weekend soundtrack.

I was able to catch them last week at its EP release show in NYC, and although the room was small, their energy (and talent) will certainly be taking them to much bigger venues very soon. (Refer back to this post when that happens and remember I told you so.)

This week’s #NewTracksTuesday is a track off the EP called, “Suicide Note in a Pop Song,” which really showcases the trio’s rare ability to produce that unique, indie sound without having to sacrifice catchy hooks or a wide-range appeal.
