Have Another Plants And Animals Tune

Earlier in the summer, I was pleased to share with you some new tunes and an album announcement from the iconic and always reliable Montreal based band Plants and Animals. Over the years, it’s been interesting to hear he mutations of the band’s sound but I feel like this new single “Love that Boy” could be an even further evolution into greatness. The bright and sunny vibes from the band are still there underneath but some new elements of R&B beats and groovy, soothing swirls have also been added in to give the song this lovely, relaxing vibe. Have yourself a listen below.

Plants and Animals will release The Jungle on October 23rd via Secret City Records.

Plants and Animals Return Again

Over the year we’ve talked quite a bit about Montreal based band Plants and Animals, but the group seemingly goes away for a few years after releasing new music. Last we heard from the guys, they released the underrated album Waltzed in From the Rumbling way back in 2016. Well they are returning again in 2020 with this new single called “Sacrifice” which has caused me stop everything I’m doing and listen to this jam over and over again. It moves at an absolutely frantic pace, leading up to some drastic break downs and powerful vocal performances. This is exactly what I needed today.

Plants and Animals will release this song as part of a new album coming sometime in 2020.

Plants and Animals Return!

img-plants-and-animals_113615648555Man I used to really be into Canadian group Plants and Animals several years ago and I honestly wasn’t sure if the band was still making music or not. You can likely now imagine my excitement when I just got word today that the band is making a return after a long 4 year absence. A brand new album is planned for release in the Spring featuring this awesome new single “No Worries Gonna Find Us”. It’s a stunning, driving pop song with a catchy hook and a nice beat keeping your head nodding throughout. Dig.

Waltzed in From the Rumblingis due out on April 28th via Secret City Records.

Show Preview: Plants and Animals @ Lamberts (5/25)

Date Friday, May 25th
Location Lamberts
Doors 1000 pm
Tickets $10 from C3

With all the incredible shows in town on Friday evening, we wanted to make sure you were aware of all our favorite acts, so we got one more great suggestion for you, Plants and Animals.  The Canadian group will be making their way into town to play at Lamberts to support the release of their recent record, The End of That. In my mind, they’ve got this real classic indie rock song, but as the group’s evolved they seem to have taken on the personality of a rocking M. Ward–an interesting twist.  Opening the evening will be Papermoons, so show up early, and don’t talk ’til the band’s off the stage.
