ANIMAL FEELINGS

ANIMAL FEELINGS is New York-based artist Oli Chang’s latest musical experiment. Highly collaborative in spirit, the album evokes a mad-capped, improvisational dance party with a set list that ranges from the melodic-driven European disco classics of Todd Terje to the seductive rock and soul mash up of Hall & Oates. This is music you want to move to: emotionally resonant interludes and aggressive bass drops are paired with twisted vocal and electronic accents that will invariably induce dance floor euphoria. As a gifted lyricist and producer attuned to the zeitgeist, Chang’s ANIMAL FEELINGS deftly switches gears, going from sprawling ambient songs to dark but fun electro pop gems.

A series of distinct, eminently danceable singles will lead up to the release of the ANIMAL FEELINGS debut album on NEVER LEAVE NEVER SLEEP (NLNS), the label on which Chang and Jack Milas released their debut High Highs Open Season album. Embracing New York’s incubatory character, Chang has bought along friends for the ride, including artists Craig (http://www.craigandkarl.com) and Ebony Fleur (http://www.ebonyfleur.com/). Given the eclectic nature of the songs themselves, the project demanded equally ambitious visuals and each single will be accompanied by a music video by Australian artist and director Adam France (http://www.adamfrance.com.au/).

The project’s irresistible first single “Fire” intertwines pop-bliss with harder techno sounds to create a unique blend of indie-dance pop. Fire’s music video, directed by Adam France, mirrors the song’s indomitable message: incredible choreography, mischievous animation and cutting-edge graphics coalesce, recalling the idiosyncratic brilliance of French photographer and Grace Jones collaborator Jean-Paul Goude.

About Oli Chang:

Oli Chang is most known for the celebrated ambient dream-pop of High Highs, a long-running collaboration with Jack Milas. His last electronic music project was called Theatre Of Disco, which was one of Australian label Future Classic’s first signings. Chang was drawn back to dance music whilst writing High Highs second album. During this time he also started “LOVELESS NIGHTS,” a cult, wildly diverse dance party held at Kinfolk 94 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, which also served as a testing ground and incubator for ANIMAL FEELINGS.

“The best thing about living in NY is that you’re surrounded by talented ambitious people who want to collaborate. That energy can feed back into a loop that hopefully explodes into something beautiful.”

“The funnest habit in the world is to jump around in the studio all day to music that you love. So that’s what I try to do everyday!”
