Born Cages with Bachelors of Fine Art

For Born Cages, freedom stands paramount. The New York-based alternative rock outfit thrives on creatively seeking that freedom, whether it’s in the studio or on stage. There’s no rulebook. There’s no template. There’s simply unhindered art in its purest form when Vlad Holiday [lead vocals/guitar], Amanda Carl [keyboards/backing vocals], Steve Kellner [bass guitar/backing vocals], and Dave Tantao [drums] converge. As a result of that shared boundless mentality, a delicate alchemy of raw guitars and shimmering electronics powers I’m Glad I’m Not Me, their forthcoming full-length debut for Razor & Tie. All boundaries and chains might just be broken in the process.

BFA (Bachelors of Fine Art) is a power pop band out of New York City. Although much of their sound can be traced back to post punk and new wave bands of the ’70s and ’80s, their pop sensibility reflects that of a group of kids raised on the likes of Pavement, and then later bands like The Strokes and LCD Soundsystem. Shimmering, jangling guitars mesh with soaring synths and gripping vocals, all anchored around an explosive rhythm section that blasts through the crowd of Brooklyn chill wave acts and commands your attention. If you don’t buy it, listen to their debut single, “Skytanic,” and check out upcoming shows to say you were there from the beginning.
