Light In Cages
Rowan Stuart with Light In Cages
Light In Cages is a concept album, in which Rowan took a departure from the easy-listening sounds of the past, to explore the darker, more intense corners of his musical imagination. The album is best described as an Edgy, Experimental, Alternate Rock journey, and pays homage to the progressive spirit of groups such as Soundgarden, Radiohead, Silversun Pickups and Muse. Light In Cages bursts forth with grand, Smashing Pumpkins-esque guitars, unpredictable, groove-laden bass, and lightning-charged drumming, as it artfully shifts between moments of rock grandeur and moments of eerie beauty. All the while, the distinctive vocals – sometimes angsty, sometimes serene – lead the way on a journey through light and darkness.
