Chicago pop-prog band Post Animal released their critically acclaimed self-written, performed and produced debut album When I Think Of You In A Castle last year via Polyvinyl, and today they share a new song before kicking off a North American tour with Twin Peaks. The band’s first new song since 2018, “Safe or Not” takes the band’s signature kaleidoscopic, guitar-heavy sound in a radiant, dance-ready direction and hints at more surprising sonic exploration to come. Check out the extended mix of “Safe or Not” and its trippy lyric video now HERE.
“We wanted to leave the content more open ended for the listener to navigate, but it’s about self reflection,” Post Animal explains. “We played around with more somber, serious lyrical content over a particularly dance-oriented song to juxtapose how one may feel internally versus how they’re outwardly portraying themselves in the moment.”
In addition to the band’s current North American tour with Twin Peaks, Post Animal will open for Cage The Elephant in the UK/EU early next year. See below to find a show near you, and get your tickets HERE.
