Music was not always a part of the ANIMALS story.  A Harvard grad-turned-street artist reclaimed his love for making music after a life-crushing hiatus.  “By day, I found myself so discontent with what this ‘real world’ I worked so hard for had to offer.  At night I found myself creating art on buildings and thought the only thing missing now is music. I was fighting the inevitable and left my job for what I always loved to do before college.”

The music consummated when Williamsburg neighbors SKYES and PAPERWHITE all met at a warehouse party showcasing some of the artwork.   “It felt like a terrible and predictable episode of GIRLS but in the end ANIMALS was created.”  The remix was agreed upon before a note was even written and now here it is.  Ceilings – the verses are super intimate snapshots of memories that sound like the nostalgic script of a 90’s teen movie.   

“Tomorrow when we say goodbye, we’ll promise that we’ll always stay the same”

The choruses scream that we have moved on.

“This is the town we used to know, this is the school we used to own.”

ANIMALS has a sense of honesty and truth. Trying to pave its own way in a very synth pop world, this song slows down and has a conversation.  There is a sense of love and loss.  “So far, I have only written about the same potent ten seconds of my life.  The creative well isn’t dry, we’ll see where it takes me next.”
