SONG PREMIERE: BLACK LIGHT ANIMALS REFLECT ON NARCISSISM WITH SLINKY DARK POP ANTHEM “HALO”
By: Timothy Anderl
Black Light Animals are a psychedelic soul group hailing from the midwest. Taking equal influence from ’70s Italian horror soundtracks, Wu Tang samples, and Ziggy Stardust-era David Bowie, their sprawling debut album explores themes of humanity, social media obsession, political division, and the concept of “amusing ourselves to death.” Sonically rich and full of spaghetti western guitars, psychedelic keyboards, hip hop rhythms, and lush vocals, Playboys of the Western World comes off as some forgotten ’70s film soundtrack, while exploring themes very much relevant to today.
Black Light Animals’ Playboys of the Western World will be available August 20 on limited vinyl, CD and streaming/digital formats via Groove King Records. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]
