Atlanta’s own Cover Your Tracks will be playing Carolina Rebellion this year, bringing their brand of rock to the stage in Concord. The band’s latest album, Fever Dream, was released in September under Epitaph Records. This morning I took a peek at the video from one of the singles off the album, “Cages”.
The video features the band rocking a packed show. As the band powers through the chorus, the lyrics speak to the artificial divisions separating us from each other – and our true selves. The band puts on a high-energy show, with guitars blasting powerful chords, the vocals are familiar and blend in with the guitars like butter on an English muffin.
The song is catchy in that it is easy to sing to. It is one of those tracks that uses a metaphor so well, that layers of meaning ooze from it each time you run through the lyrics in your head. For those less inclined to ponder metaphors about invisible enclosures, there are the guitars, luscious and electric.
