As Levitation Fest begins here in Austin, introducing new or developing artists is important so you can get a head start on their sound and how they’ve evolved. Post Animal will be playing on Thursday at Hotel Vegas in Austin.
Post Animal has been releasing music since 2015 and they’ve continued to reinvent and prove themselves to be a highly talented band. Their music stems from many classic psychedelic alternative/rock influences but they have turned those influences into their particular sound.
Many tracks represent Post Animal well, and here are a few worthy to check out before their show to give an idea of what to expect.
One of their earlier songs is best to mention because it will take you from the beginning to see how they’ve evolved. “Goggles” from Post Animal Perform the Most Curious Water Activities, starts off the record right with a quick theme into what’s to come next with every song.
The track starts with a strong instrumental, and it takes you from there with steady momentum into the lyrics. “I think I should put my goggles on and see what’s lurking underneath,” leaves you curious along with all the instruments taking their time to present an idea as slow drum beats and whiny guitar sounds build the song up.
The song is the definition of satisfying and is resolved in the last minute with an explosion that brings out the rock side of this group.
A classic from Post Animal is “When I Get Home” from The Garden Series-EP. This track conquers expectations lyrically and musically. The beat is addictive and the slight funkiness is what sells the song, along with the lyrics telling a story.
The track takes you along for a catchy ride and then leaves you with a funky melancholy ending. “When I get home, what if I just do not let you in, When I get home, because I know you won’t stay, When I get home, maybe I’d prefer to be alone.”
This is one of the songs from Post Animal that will stick with you and will prepare you for their live show.
“How Do You Feel” from Forward Motion Godyssey is a great dynamic song with strong leading vocals and a lot of drama from the instruments. This song expresses so much pleading from both the vocals and the instruments which are clearly about a breakup. “In the end it’s just space to grow, not just distance. How do you feel?”
These are a few songs to introduce you to Post Animal before their Levitation show on Thursday!
