Social Cues, in comparison, is full-on American gothic. The album was produced by John Hill, a surprising choice given his chart and Grammy wins with Eminen, Rhianna and Portugal. The Man. But Hills pop focus and Cages eccentric vigor generate a band-driven tension of cleverly drawn shadows and silver-lining choruses that suggest Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers if they had been raised on the Cure and Berlin-era David Bowie instead of the Byrds and the Zombies. The Bowie flourish in Social Cues is nearly literal, a curdled-synth lick respectfully descended from the one in his 1980 classic of drifting and dependency Ashes to Ashes. Night Running, which features Shultz in duet with Beck, is a midnight creep with dub-reggae effects a la the Clashs Sandinista!. But the urgency on Social Cues is all present tense. In House of Glass, guitarist Brad Shultz escalates the turbulence in his brothers machine-gun rhyming with staccato bursts of wiry fuzz while upper-cut power chords punctuate the brawny, martial stomp of bassist Daniel Tichenor and drummer Jared Champion. Loves the Only Way is a softer landing with strings and spatial, chiming guitar until you hit the jolts of regret and Matts deflated certainty (You make up the rules/Or so they claim).
