Melbourne’s favourite party starting seven-piece, Animaux, just dropped a brand new single, and to celebrate – they’re taking their high energy live show on the open road.
Set to melt away your winter blues, the troupe will be taking to various east coast venues this August, delivering a set list of both old and new tunes.
‘Come On Over’ showcases the band’s evolving versatility, with the infectious instrumental hooks and the vocal range journey it takes you on. When asked about the lyrics, songwriter and saxophone player Ollie explains “I guess it’s about the fine line between giving too much, and losing sight of what you love about yourself, and recognising your weaknesses, and compromising.”
Having started out as a bunch of baby-faced high schoolers with floppy haircuts, playing their own brand of funky pop music week in, week out at their now infamous Evelyn Hotel (Fitzroy) residencies, the massive act has matured into a staple of the Melbourne and broader Australian live music scene.
Take a listen to the fresh song ‘Come On Over’ right here and be sure to make your way to one of their electrifying gigs this August.
