Post Animal has been featured in NME and Entertainment Weekly. They've played with the likes of Twin Peaks, Wavves and The Orwells. Their psych rock sound made a solid splash on account of their guitarist Joe Keery (aka Steve from Stranger Things) but they're touring hard and proving that they've got the musical chops to be a great band.
As with most new fans of the band, it was Netflix's Stranger Things that first brought Post Animal to our attention. "Steve's hair brought me here," admits a viewer on YouTube, crediting the discovery to guitarist Joe who plays bad-boy-turned-good Steve, Nancy's "stealthy, like a ninja" boyfriend. New synth gods S U R V I V E, creators of the show's iconic soundtrack just released it across two volumes alongside their own album, RR7349. But of course that wasn't enough. We wanted more and so happily fell into this Post Animal psych rock hole while stalking and found it to be really, really great. Already drawing comparisons to Tame Impala and Mac Demarco, we're hearing elements of The Shins and The Beatles across their latest The Garden Series release too. In fact, if you listen carefully you can almost hear the synth of the Stranger Things theme tune towards the end of killer single When I Get Home. But perhaps we're listening just a little too hard.
