We’re thrilled to present to you the video for Caged Animals’ forthcoming single ‘The Sound of Thunder’, self-directed by Vincent Cacchione with Mike McLean. The single will be released on December 16, ahead of a European Tour in early 2014.
The video features Cacchione’s little sister, and Caged Animals’ bass player, Tayla as a 90′s style Goth-Girl living in Millennial Suburbia who gets caught up in a series of mysterious and supernatural events.
‘The Sound Of Thunder’ is an uplifting pop song that advises against giving in to the un-escapable, the idea that we should savor our lives and not be afraid. Inspired by Vin’s friend from Soft Black, (Zachary) Cole Smith, and now lead singer/guitarist for DIIV, and the emotion Cole can create with just a single guitar line. It was his musical-mojo that inspired the searing guitar melody that follows each chorus.
