Since forming in 2011, Animal Talk quickly made a mark on the Boston music scene with a sound often described as “post-dance rock.” After recording it’s self-titled debut EP with Grammy winning producer/engineer Ducky Carlisle, Animal Talked gained the attention of Boston radio stations 101.7 WFNX, 92.9 FM, 88.9 WERS and many others. Along with radio, press began to take notice; The Boston Phoenix called Animal Talk one of Boston’s “Best New Bands” while Stuff Magazine declared them “Hottest Indie Rock.”
Animal Talk dedicated 2012 to building their live show and amassing a wider audience. Notably, Animal Talk appeared at festivals both nationally and internationally including, SXSW, CMJ, NXNE and Indie Week in Toronto. After playing with acts like Young The Giant, Wolf Gang, Reptar, Bassnectar, and Deftones, the buzz surrounding the band grew within the Northeast and Canada. By the end of the year Animal Talk was playing to sold out crowds at clubs such as, The Middle East, Brighton Music Hall, TT the Bear’s Place in Boston, Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, and The Painted Lady and Underground Garage in Toronto.
Animal Talk is heading back to the studio in 2013 to make their follow up to 2011′s release. 2013 will also see the band embarking on tours throughout the Northeast and Canada as well as hitting the festival circuit, starting with an appearance at SXSW in March.
