Get Weekend-Ready with our Exclusive Playlist From ANIMÁL


Hot off the release of their debut single, rising stars and Brooklyn duo ANIMÁL have put together the ultimate weekend playlist!

With summer on the horizon, one of the warm weather releases we’re most excited for comes from Brooklyn-based duo ANIMÁL. Their debut album Flight is due to drop mid-June and ahead of the release, the alt-electro group gifted us with the album’s lead single just last Friday, “Let Me Down.” It certainly did not disappoint, and the track sets an exciting precedent for the album-to-come, as it brilliantly synthesizes electronic and alt-rock elements to create the group’s stunning, layered sound.

The project also features production and mixing by Pluko, who has quickly risen the ranks in the scene and worked with an impressive array of both alternative and electronic artists such as Odesza, Manila Killa, and, most recently, Panama. If their work on “Let Me Down” is any indication, there’s no doubt that his latest collab with ANIMÁL is set to be one of the most exciting projects to date for Pluko and we can’t wait to hear it for ourselves.

Speaking on their debut album, ANIMÁL said, “This album was our way of introducing ANIMÁL to the world by telling a 12-track story front to back. We wanted to give electronic and alt-rock listeners the best of both worlds — something you can dance to and rock out to at the same time. Hopefully, this scratches that itch for a lot of people.”

To hold you over until Flight‘s release, enjoy our latest playlist from ANIMÁL! Packed full of feel-good tunes from the likes of Pluko, Ratatat, Bob Moses, and more, there’s no doubt that this playlist will keep you moving and grooving all weekend long.

Listen to the playlist below, stay tuned for the release of Flight, and let us know what upcoming releases you’re most excited for in the comments!

Sydney attributes her love for music from her mom, who insisted on playing The Foo Fighters and The White Stripes rather than Kiss FM whenever she drove carpool and agreed to allow Sydney to attend Coachella in the eighth grade as long as she could go with her. That first festival only greater affirmed Sydney’s passion for the scene, but it was not until 2013 when she attended Swedish House Mafia’s One Last Tour concert in Los Angeles that she discovered electronic music. She was hooked instantly and has since attended a total of 23 festivals, with countless concerts in between. Sydney’s favorite artists include RL Grime, Jauz, Jai Wolf, Louis The Child, Slander, Bearson and Big Gigantic but she is constantly on the look out for new music and artists to dance to. When she’s not scouring the internet for new tracks or grooving at a concert, Sydney studies Journalism and Biology full-time at the University of Oregon.
