"When I’m creating, I try to put myself in a reactive state of improvisational thought. I let images just arise in my mind and wait for it to evoke an emotional response and then when it does, I know I’m on to something." Social Cues is the fifth studio album from Kentucky sextet Cage The Elephant. Recorded in Nashville and L.A. with seasoned producer John Hill (Florence And The Machine, Portugal The Man) and featuring a collaboration with Beck, the album is a notable leap forward - no small feat for a band who calls Dave Grohl their backup drummer. Dealing with a breakup and taking inspiration from the films of Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Darren Aronofsky, frontman Matt Shultz speaks through characters in order to tell different parts of his story: “It can be a vehicle to act out things that are hard to confront.” Indie exclusive dark green colored vinyl edition is housed in gatefold jacket with foldout insert and code for digital download.
