After the release of his debut EP, Warwick Levy (aka Failr) took a year off songwriting to clear his head. It was during this time that he one day began playing around with a guitar and vocal sample that he found online, the beginnings of “Animal”.
On the process behind “Animal”, Levy says,
The end result of Levy’s fiddlings is truly a spectacle. With a vocal sample eliciting reminders of sounds created by groups like The Avalanches, Levy warmly weaves funky guitar riffs around the sample and AVIVA’s duetting voice. A punchy beat and AVIVA‘s clear indie vocals create an interesting, engaging dynamic that might make listeners want to dance, yet the melancholic vocal sample wistfully keeps the track grounded, like a reminder of reality versus the easiness of slipping into a dancing stupor.
