Watch: Caged Animals Unveil "Cindy + Me" Music Video

Caged Animals have unveiled the video for their new single "Cindy + Me", out on 17th June via Lucky Number, ahead of a new album later this year.

About the song, Vincent explained: "Cindy + Me’ is my attempt at capturing some sinister version of the adolescent dream. It's an outlaw love song, based around a sample from synthesizer-pioneer Raymond Scott's 'Cindy Electronium.' In the song, I'm a crazed teenager in love, running away from home with the girl and some twisted view of the future. We've got her father tied up in the house, a smoldering corpse, we've got the cash, "We're living on top of the world," and we're going to get away with it.” 

The video, featuring Vincent Cacchione, Magali Charron and the baboons: Jack, Janet, Jonas, Jojo, J.Lo and Jeremiah in the leading roles (pls take it seriously), was directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada. Watch it below.

The Maccabees Confirm They're Working On New Album

London indie band The Maccabees have confirmed that they are back in the studio working on their fourth album, the follow-up to 2012's Given To The Wild, and revealed that they hope to get it finished by the end of year.

Frontman Orlando Weeks told NME:

"We went straight back into our studio in Elephant & Castle at the end of last year. We spent time doing it up too - I was painting the kitchen."

"We had such a busy time after 'Given To The Wild' and to feel excited enough to get on with a new album straight away must mean something."

Guitarist Felix White also discussed how the album is going to sound, and his big hopes for the record, "It's going to be sort of similar to Given To The Wild, but it's also going to be more direct and exciting. I think it's going to be our best record."

Given To The Wild was released in January last year, reaching number four in the UK Albums Chart.
