Proving that electronic music is a broad and often ambiguous term for a genre that is actually a spectrum of various energies, tones, emotions, and musical approaches. Brooklyn-based producers and multi-instrumentalists, ANIMÁL is a testament to the righteous, nameless nature of dance music. Their debut album, Flight is a wavy, indie-fusion gem with seductive implications. Co-produced by pluko, the album’s echoing lyricism coincides like a yin and yang with the production- giving rise to each other as they aesthetically interrelate. The ongoing guitar riffs throughout the project are unmistakable, proving to be its most defining facet. Including their breakout singles “Let Me Down” and “A Place In The Sun,” which pay homage to music that reaches far beyond the influence of electronic production, Flight is nothing short of impressive. ANIMÁL walks a fine line between risky and fantastic, and this alternative electronic album proves that they are now delving, head first, into the fantastic. We can’t wait to hear these two on the mainstage.
“This album was our way of introducing ANIMÁL to the world by telling a 12-track story front to back. We wanted to give electronic and alt-rock listeners the best of both worlds — something you can dance to and rock out to at the same time. Hopefully this scratches that itch for a lot of people.” – ANIMÁL
