Album of the Week: Cage the Elephant – Neon Pill

Since their last album in 2019 Cage the Elephant have been through tough times. Brothers Brad and Matt Shultz lost their Dad and other challenges have tested them. Neon Pill isn’t a sad exploration of tough times but rather triumphant, a celebration of music’s healing power. As AllMusic say the band “once again cannily synthesizes a variety of alt-rock eras, marrying a neo-garage rock bounce with washes of psychedelia, punctuating the proceedings with new wave flair and the occasional earnest ballad”.
