ANIMAL NOISE – LITTLE THINGS
Colchester Indie trio Animal Noise practice on a farm in an old converted milking parlour. In the rural setting there is no one around for miles so the band have always been able to write together as loudly as possible and with no time restraints! The trio met each other at a house party a few years back after finding a broken guitar with a few snapped strings. Their new single is Little Things and with its earthy yet modern production (mixed by Gethin Pearson for Big Life Management– Prides, The Hearts, Mallory Knox) has been described by Jack Gordon-Abbott, the band’s drummer as “a drop-tuned, riff-soaked ballad about temptation and obsession.” The single is a follow up to the band’s ‘Sink or Swim; EP which was released last year. Since that vinvul release the band have been touring across the country including selling out their hometown show at Colchester Arts Centre and headlining SwanFest in Ipswich plus some high profile festival dates like British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park, Standon Calling, Fling, Ramsbottom and Wilkestock amongst others. Animal Noise’s music has recently been picking up love from key tastemakers God Is In The TV, Louder Than War, Sofar Sounds, Jammerzine, Indie Band Guru and XS-Noise, as well as radio support from BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing, Virgin Radio and SOHO Radio, and US College Radio Stations.
