ANIMAL BODIES (Can)
Animal Bodies is a duo from Vancouver, Canada. Their music ranges from rhythmic industrial soundscapes to cold, minimal pop songs. Using a mixture of studio sessions and live jams, they constructed their first 12" titled "Kiss of the Fang", released by Sweating Tapes (LA) in Nov of 2011. Analog synths and mechanical beats mix with serpent like guitar lines and howling vocals in songs that shift between haunting melodies and relentless electronic rhythms. Drawing inspiration from the grey and industrial scenery of the inner city and it's surrounding landscape, Animal Bodies' music reflects the grim and despondent side of the Pacific Northwest; the ancient rain forests, the endlessly cold, grey seasons and the paradox of a city torn between two class extremes. They have shared the stage with bands ranging from the Soft Moon and Salem to Dirty Beaches, Bestial Mouths, Soft Metals and Myths. They're coming back with a new record entitled "The Killing Scene"
Porté par ses plus fidèles enfants soldats, le fantôme d'une new wave en décomposition lacère nos tourments sardoniques. Evocation nostalgique de certaines caves belges dissimulées. Hurlée au travers de nos entrailles, Martellements synthétiques. Effondrements électriques. Au rythme du vandalisme quotidien, la désillusion se fait symphonique.
