As Animals keep their melodies simple yet elegant on their self-titled debut. The simplicity of this duo’s dynamic is unique in an era of pop music that relies on the more electronics, the better, to carry hooks through. Prevalent throughout this record is the sheer talent of vocalist Zara Desbonnes, who is accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Frederic Grange. Led by the single, “I See Ghost (Ghost Gunfighters)”, and highlighted by tracks such as “In My Head” and “Nighthawks Dropping”, the French duo introduce themselves to the world with a quiet, simple, and pleasant statement.
