Spotlight: Ancient Animals – Ruins

940785916-1

By popular demand, or rather, by The Pocket Rockets – I delve into the world of Ancient Animals. Which is weird, because I see no animals around here. Oh, wait, there they are! Last year, they released an EP titled “Ruins”. This macabre duo, consisting of Dan Reyes and Andres Freyre, will make sure you’re in for a peculiar trip. A description might not be enough, but think of a sickly drone, trying to catch its last breath. Dirty, gritty and troublesome, eclectic to the fullest extent possible. Which makes them focus a lot on the general atmosphere, which is somewhere in between a manufacturing plant and an electricians everyday business. Sometimes upbeat, uptight and with the absolute audacity – to punch you in the gut, and then pour you a raining serenade of dirty riffs. Rock’n’roll to the core, at least when it comes to the values. They are crushingly stubborn, gazing through a smoky haze of white powder, maximum hedonism and apathetic ballads. Perfect, since it was a boring Sunday hours ago. Listen to their music down below.
