We Stay Vacant
As the world continues its decades-long infatuation with electronic dance music, fans are continually seeing it grow and evolve, bringing new ideas and unbridled creativity. Today’s a perfect example of that, as we bring you a look at London/Cambridge four-piece drum and bass outfit Animal Music.
Dropping today, “We stay Vacant” is a first glimpse at this group’s original work. With obvious influences of Netsky, Wilkinson, Chase & Status, and other notable drum and bass legends, Animal Music also sites songwriters like Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, and Bon Iver as inspiration, as well.
“We Stay Vacant” showcases the combination of the two worlds, fusing the fast-paced world of booming basslines, energetic percussion, and supercharged melodies with articulate songwriting abilities. Lead singer Tom Sutcliffe provides vocals on the track, bringing a song with a true message. And, while dance tracks have boasted amazing vocals for years to come, Animal Music has woven it into every aspect of their art. Not only will you hear Sutcliffe on their tracks, but he’ll be bringing those vocals live to each and every live performance.
We’ve been forging our sound in the studio and playing shows endlessly for the last two years without putting anything out. It’s like we’ve stolen a plane and been flying on fumes. Now we need to fill the tank. Obviously it will be incredible to go and play the four corners of the planet, taking the music to everyone so they can see and hear it for themselves. – Pete Pocket
