about

Animal is “ heartbreakingly beautiful, terrifying, melodramatic, and contains a visceral exigency that abides the world over.” - 9/10 Alisha Mughal (Exclaim! Magazine)

"Whether this is shoegaze, dream-pop, ambient or soundscape doesn’t matter. This isn’t music, this is emotion made solid.
When the aliens do finally arrive to judge us for all our faults, we should give them “Animal” and say that at least one of us made this. Maybe that will be enough." - Jimmy & Mark (WhiteLight//WhiteHeat Blog)

"...a rare sensitivity and an explicit ability to conceive textures and sound atmospheres that often pass between euphoria and tranquility, in an almost imperceptible way, but that disturb all pores of our more sentimental and spiritual side" - Joao Tavares (Man on the Moon Music Blog)

Track Name: Better
Come on home
Come inside
It’s always better on my side

(He won’t moan
He won’t fight)
It’s so much better on the other side

The way I know you walk inside me is when I go you’ll walk beside me
Track Name: Heart
All full of my time
Don’t let me down
All I know must get in the way

No thanks I’m just fine
Don’t wanna try
All I hope must get in the way

All fine I’m all fine
I wanna die
And my heart must get in the way

All fine I’m all fine
I don’t wanna die
And my heart must get in the way
Track Name: Always All Ways
You are going to curse it all, all ways always.
You are going to pass it on, all ways always.
L: I am not equipped at all, all ways always.
R: (You are not a curse at all, all ways)
L: I am going to curse it all, all ways always.
R: (You aren’t going to pass it on, all ways always)


You aren’t going to pass it on, all ways always
You are not a curse at all, all ways

L. I’m exactly why I’m acting
R. I’m wrong wrong wrong
L. I have stopped depending on you
R. I’m wrong wrong wrong



I have stopped depending on you

Track Name: Animal
Animal.
Animal I know.

They came along, unbolted the lock.
(They know how.)
They hang around.
They open the door for wolves, now.

Animal.
Animal I know.
Track Name: No One
I like to think of myself as another less traumatized boy with less problems of joy but I’m no one.
I want to be him, to be what you want, but I don’t have the faintest clue what he’s about 'cause I’m no one.
