Just had my first listen to Animal Reporters and I’m digging their 2016 EP Gorilla Washington.
Musically, I’m getting a deconstructed Arctic Monkeys meets Black Keys vibe here — but that doesn’t really do it justice. There’s a unique blend of influences that shines through in the choruses and harmonies that ties it all together for a nice overall sound. I’m almost getting a Roland Orzabal – Tears for Fears vibe from the lead vocals, which captures me when juxtaposed over the modern rock backing.
These NYC-based rockers have hit such festivals as Catskill Chill, and just opened for the awesome Zach Deputy at SOB’s in Tribeca. Up next is a Knitting Factory date with Atlas Road Crew on 1/27/17.
Check out their EP here and show some love:
