Cheeky as monkeys and catchy as the flu, Animal House have now released their brand new EP Hot Bodies, which is out now and available to stream on Spotify.
To celebrate the release, you can stream the EP in its entirety exclusively via Northern Transmissions now.
The band have also shared their new video, choreographed by dance duo The Hiccup Project, for the vibrant single Coca Cola. The video premiered on
The Revue and is available to watch now via the band's YouTube channel.
The audio for the single premiered on Gigslutz and is also available to stream via the band's Soundcloud page now.
Animal House are here to kick a bored, robotic generation up off their arses and dancing to guitar music again. With accolades and experience coming out of their ears, there is little doubt that they are poised to become one of indie music’s leading guitar bands. Nonsense, cheekiness and foolish yet on-point observational humour are quickly becoming their trademarks as well as their tight, rebranded 60s garage pop sound. The band’s latest single Coca Cola is raucous, yet well thought out; a welcome break from the EDM bashing that is dominating the pop charts.
Uprooted from the sweet sun in Australia, Animal House relocated to the UK to bring their casual charm onto European stages and into their tracks. Whilst they joke about their hedonistic adventures in the unique pseudo-culture of Brighton, the underlying message is solid; when it comes to entertainment, they’re not trying to impress you - the music - the energy, it speaks for itself.
Fresh off the back of a hugely successful European tour and having also previously supported Courtney Barnett, The Wedding Present, The Preatures, Surfer Blood and Drenge to name a few, Animal House are ready to go. Having already received significant acclaim for their debut EP Sorry from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and Sean Keaveny, as well as NME, DIY and Clash, Animal House are now gearing up to release their forthcoming EP Hot Bodies. The EP is a cohesive and well-thought-out barrel of guitars, shakers and raspy, sexy vocals and it’s marvellously stupid.
You can hear the new EP live on the 28th July when Animal House will play The Hope & Ruin, Brighton.
Single Coca Cola is taken from the EP, Hot Bodies, both available to stream on Spotify.
