Animal Eyes - "Mushroom Hunter" (audio) (premiere)

Hailing from Portland by way of Alaska, Animal Eyes tap into their psychedelic side on their new single.

Four years removed from their debut album Found in the Forest and two years after the Ursus EP, Alaska-bred and Portland-based band Animal Eyes are set to release their second full-length album Where We Go in September.

In advance of the new record the band has released the single “Mushroom Hunter”, which finds the quintet drifting a little further away from the folkier sounds of the debut and more towards something more psychedelic and abstract. When those layered vocal harmonies kick in, you can hear the influence of Animal Collective and Grizzly Bear, but best of all you notice the confidence this band shows on their third release. We’re pleased to premiere the track today, and be sure to learn more about Animal Eyes via Facebook and Bandcamp.
