The Golden Cage Society Release their Mini EP “Mira” on the 27th of February
Have you ever been lost in a piece of music before? The kind of lost where you are beamed off into another plane of existence and brought to bittersweet musical bliss with every crescendo? When you take a dip into the mysteriously mesmerizing world of The Golden Cage Society, you’re not just sinking back into an otherworldly trip of rich soundscapes and mystical storytelling; you’re taking a step into the raw, untamed mind of a genuine artist that elegantly paints a picture of life in all its ugly glory.
Fusing sophisticated song progressions with grandiose instrumental build ups, catchy melodies and paradigm shifting life observations; The Golden Cage Society are here to strike that perfect balance between infectious, pop-rock-perfection and boundary pushing experimentation. The thoughtful three-piece are currently launching into the musical stratosphere with their debut mini EP “Mira” (release date Feb. 7th 2020). Though only bearing two songs, the release is a genre-bending journey across twelve minutes of jaw-dropping musical prowess and tasteful, stylistic song worlds. Opener track “Mira el mar” whisks listeners away on a magical music trip around the sound pallet.
From Spanish influenced flamenco interludes, to epic rock-dripped euphoria, contagiously soaring choruses and screeching, frantic peaks; the song keeps you on the edge of your seat whilst eloquently revealing a story of lost love and eventual freedom from self-imposed restrictions.
The second track “Howls” questions why humans do the things that they do and the cry for deeper meaning that comes with every action we take. Brimming with ethereal guitar lines, hazy, atmospheric soundscapes and unforgettably earth-shattering crescendos; the art-rock piece itself is a howl for the desire to spread wisdom and perfectly-practiced, beautiful melodies to the world. Based out of Leipzig, Germany, The Golden Cage Society is the brainchild of lifetime artist, musician and songwriter Lutz Leukhardt. He previously ran the award winning group “Dante’s Dream” that saw some serious success in their day.
Some of the bands notable highlights include: touring as far a Haagse Pop Week, Berlin and Amsterdam, getting featured on the video game “Rock Band”, writing the title song “Gamers Unite” for an early Gamescom convention and even getting praised on their work by Billy Talent. The Golden Cage Society was formed in 2018, with the name being inspired by the scars and restrictions left behind by the darker shades of life such as prejudice, fear of commitment, existential dread and eternal longing.
