Fall 2016, rainy days and whispering winds, Animal Youth was born from the ashes of the noise punk band Siamese Queens.
Obsessed with sad love stories and the cold echo of 80's romanticism, a new kind of sound emerged with reverberation and fuzz, with a chorus bass and gated drums as its foundation.
Today, it's probably hard to say of what it is made, surely elements can be found reminding of Cocteau Twins and The Jesus And Mary Chain, The Cure, hints of My Bloody Valentine and A Place to Bury strangers...
The trio left their cave for the first time on October the fifth 2016, and since have been playing in many major venues across Belgium (Magasin 4, Botanique, Trix...).
On stage, they bring out their many influences with a strong energy and blissfull melancholy, transporting a sound that's consequently dreamy and intense.
They first came with a digital EP called "Youth", which has morphed to a full album “ANIMAL” that will be released as a 12 inch on Weyrd Son Records , May 27th 2017, for the label's 4 years anniversary.
Since ANIMAL is just a beginning, be sure you'll hear some more about the young band, soon enough.
