So what kind of music do Cage the Elephant make? It's a good question, but you'll be hard pressed to find a simple answer. It's most definitely rock, but getting any more specific than that would only put boundaries around it, and if you didn't already know, their musical style is limitless.
That's how it seems, at least, judging from the two albums they have released so far.
Their self-titled debut album was so refreshing, it was almost unreal. No Autotune or contrived vocal effects were layered on Shultz's voice to make up for a lack of talent. And even if someone had suggested as much, his style isn't exactly Autotune-friendly.
Schultz's lyricism, vocal style and stage presence are far from orthodox, at least compared to most modern-day music. Instead of focusing on hitting all the notes and making sure his words are intelligible, his voice - and Cage's music as a whole - is all about how it feels.
Does it need to feel raw? Then it does. Does it need to feel soft? Then it does. Does it just need to rock? Oh, it always does.
