Animal House are here to kick a bored, robotic generation up off their arses and dancing to guitar music again. With accolades and experience coming out of their ears, there is little doubt that they are poised to become one of indie music’s leading guitar bands. Nonsense, cheekiness and foolish yet on-point observational humour are quickly becoming their trademarks as well as their tight, rebranded 60s garage pop sound. The band’s latest single Coca Cola is raucous, yet well thought out; a welcome break from the EDM bashing that is dominating the pop charts.
Uprooted from the sweet sun in Australia, Animal House relocated to the UK to bring their casual charm onto European stages and into their tracks. Whilst they joke about their hedonistic adventures in the unique pseudo-culture of Brighton, the underlying message is solid; when it comes to entertainment, they’re not trying to impress you – the music – the energy, it speaks for itself.
Fresh off the back of a hugely successful European tour and having also previously supported Courtney Barnett, The Wedding Present, The Preatures, Surfer Blood and Drenge to name a few, Animal House are ready to go. Having already received significant acclaim for their debut EP Sorry from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and Sean Keaveny, as well as NME, DIY and Clash, Animal House are now gearing up to release their forthcoming EP Hot Bodies. The EP is a cohesive and well-thought-out barrel of guitars, shakers and raspy, sexy vocals and it’s marvellously stupid.
Catch Animal House live at the following dates:
1st June – The Finsbury – London 21st July – The Hope & Ruin – Brighton
Animal House’s latest single Coca Cola and their forthcoming EP Hot Bodies are both out on 9th June 2017.
