New Animal Collective Single
Experimental band go back to the garage, take a listen...
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 30 Jul 2012
Animal Collective's new single 'Today's Supernatural' is the first to be taken from the new album Centipede Hz which will be released on September 3.
Animal Collective will play Vicar Street on November 4.
Unlike their previous sample-heavy album Merriweather Post Pavilion, the upcoming album sees the Baltimore band return to their garage roots.
Explaining the direction of the album frontman Brian Weitz said, "We all moved back to Baltimore, the last few records we've written apart and by sending each other stuff. This time we all wanted to write in the same room together. We went back to our roots and we got a little practice space in this barn on Josh's [Dibb – fellow band member] mum's property and it was like being a garage band again."
He continued: "Merriweather Post Pavilion was a very sample-heavy record, we made it piece by piece in the studio, we constructed it. This one we wrote as a rock band in a room and we wanted to record it that way."
