If you’ve ever imagined sitting in a car with your friends and driving down an endless stretch of road then you’ve probably also imagined what songs you want to listen to whilst sitting in the passenger seat.
There are some songs that seem to have been written especially for these occasions and Cigarette Daydreams by Cage The Elephant is one of them. The title gives a pretty good indication to the overall aesthetic of the song. It is a hazy, chilled out and smoky track that will capture you in trance and transport you straight into the heart an american cult novel.
Those of you that are already fans of Cage The Elephant will recognize lead singer Matthew Shultz impressive vocals from their most popular song “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked”. But instead of the heavy vocals featured in previous tracks, Cigarette Daydream gives us lyrics which are softer, more emotional and the instruments play faintly and humbly in the background.
Like the sound of all that? Take a listen..
