Description
Animal Years makes living-in-the-moment music. They've said that their name has come to represent the ethos of doing just that: living like you could die any day, and counting your years as if they were an animal's—less numerous than human years and more exposed to the dangers of the natural world. In short, every moment counts. Their plugged-in folk-rock songs play out like anthems. They have that arena filling vigor but also the personal touch of a songwriter who employs equal amounts of introspection and retrospection. Animal Years' songs vary in scope, from pop songs to sprawling rock epics. The songs in this session are mostly uplifting, both lyrically and in the pure tone of the instrumentation. Often, though, the forward looking spirit of the songs will take the past into deep consideration, resulting in that glowing, ambivalent nostalgia that everyone's felt at some point in their life.
