Animal Spirit Announces Release of New Album and Music Video
Straight Out of Fort Worth, Texas
(Fort Worth, TX) On the heels of Five Texas Tours, Fort Worth Indie-Rock Acid-Beach Band Animal Spirit announces the release of their second album, This is Relevant. Four years in as a band, road time all across Texas, 3 years of SXSW appearances and multiple stops on a Mid-West tour have been poured into the making of an album that is true to dreamy Animal Spirit yet takes the band to a whole other refined level in dynamics and identifiable sound.
A true gem off of This is Relevant comes in the new single “Revenge” accompanied by a polished, edgy, retro-feeling music video. With prominent emotive bass lines and experimental trans-genre drumming, This is Relevant explodes trippy and harmonious with a tip of the hat to 90s Pacific Northwest Indie Rock and psychedelic influences.
Recorded at Green Audio Productions in their home town Fort Worth, This is Relevant brings to the table a true collaboration among band members for a cohesive sound in tone and song writing. Animal Spirit’s focus and intention is clear, taking the time over the last two years in creating a much anticipated album that shows a reflection of the gritty nature inherent in their first release balanced perfectly with a refined vision and a sharper edge. The striking album art by Michael J. Slack mirrors this release’s connectivity of humanity to the universe with direct inspiration from a track called “Blame the Stars.”
Lead singer Sam Stroheker is precise in the vocals and video work for the single “Revenge”, bringing to the surface raw human nature and the masks that hide right from wrong. The uncomfortable intensity of forced choices unfolds through sharp film-making techniques applied to music video production by video artist Rue Dwyer.
Animal Spirit’s second single release and music video Doom Surf is out now and catches a more fun and energetic side of the band with a fast paced song, and fun house party video.
Originating in Fort Worth, Texas, Animal Spirit was formed in mid-August of 2012 by Andrew Stroheker (guitar/vox), Sam Wuehrmann (vox, keys), Parker Anderson (drums/percussion/vox), and Zach Tucker (bass, vox). Winners of multiple Music Awards including Fort Worth Weekly’s Music Awards for Best Live Band, Best Rock Album, Best Bass Player, and Best Female Vocalist, Animal Spirit is headed into their fourth year as a band offering tight performances of raw energy, trippy dance beats, harmonious vibes of unity, and the rawness of humanity. Animal Spirit has found its own, and the new vision and undeniably recognizable Animal Spirit sound is powerful and prevalent throughout This is Relevant.
