After receiving over 500,000 views on their debut video, As Animals return with their new track 'As Animals'. The song was premiered byLadygunn and is taken from their forthcoming self-titled album set for release on March 3rd 2014via Atmospheriques Records.
The rising duo, made up of Frédéric Grange and Zara Desbonnes, have been causing a wave of interest in Paris, France after signing their deal. A flurry of YouTube hits on the cinematic I See Ghost (Ghost Gunfighters) video was followed up by two sold out headline gigs atNouveau Casino in Paris. They then released the track in the UK and US seeing support from Clash, Beats Per Minute and Rough Magazine, to name a few.
As Animals music has been described as deeply imaginative and dreamy. Zara's powerful vocals compliment the movie-soundtrack-esque backdrop created by Frederic and his many instruments. This could fit into the 'indie' column, but with a pop sensibility and a possible ethereal quality to boot. The influences of Fiona Apple, Bjork and Pink Floyd creep through from time to time and the artistic upbringing had by both can clearly be heard.
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
