Excited to share the excellent FTSE video for St.Tropez.
Shot in Manchester and directed by Luke Bather, of Plastic Zoo, the video perfectly compliments the original narrative of the song. The desire to escape the relentless grey that surrounds which, for the lonely main character in the video, is achieved via Karaoke.
We are thrilled to announce that we have signed New York-based duo Sleigh Bells and will release their new album, Bitter Rivals, on 7th October 2013, working with Mom + Pop.

Ahead of the release of FTSE II EP, FTSE (pronounced ‘footsie’) shares new track ‘Lost In Translation’, as premiered on FADER.
‘Lost In Translation’ is exceptional in every way. A simple arpeggio fades up, like the solar energy of daybreak, and featured co-vocalist, Femme, emits an angelic coo like cotton wool before a penetrating break of snares cracks through the ether and an equally engaging baritone propels the post-club narrative. “Never again, until next weekend. I just gotta get some sleep and I’ll be fine” the key message that alternates, always hopefully, between remorse and revelation.
Having made his live debut supporting AlunaGeorge in London in June, FTSE returns to headline Corsica Studios on the 25th of September. Details and tickets : HERE
Caged Animals are excited to announce that their forthcoming album In The Land Of Giants is now streaming in full via Filter Magazine.
