The first time I heard “Fire to Metal” by Even the Animals I instantly fell in love! Mixing gritty indie rock with foot-stompin’ country jangle it will immediately lift your mood. How can you not love a tambourine paired with kick drum and hand claps?!
The band’s name comes from a lyric in its song, “Love and loss”: “Well, you loved me cause I was no good, you loved me because I was a faker. When you came home even the animals knew what they were in for.”
Their songs in soft focus and close to the microphone are comfortably broken and beautifully wounded. The music is lyrically driven with shared harmonies that create a bittersweet atmosphere. Listen below and make sure to catch them on the road!
