Some of the coolest things come out of Sweden; Ikea, Volvo and now, Animal Daydream.
While the band is a duo, there is allot of sound packed in their new EP Easy Pleasures out now on Jigsaw Records. The four track seven-inch is loaded with lush harmonies and jangly guitars. It’s easy to feel nostalgic when listening to the EP. “Canyon Rose” and “Easy Pleasures” have plenty of layers that make you feel like you are listening to a project with three times the members. The arrangements are well executed and have a great relaxing vibe. The crowning jewel if the EP is closing track “I Knew You Would Come Along Before Fall.” The track has all same vibes of the previous songs but adds even more dynamics including the use of strings.
No doubt we are not the first to throw out possible 60’s pop influences including Moody Blues and CSNY, but there is a modern vibe to the band’s sound. If Animal Daydream stick with this formula for their full length album, the results will be amazing.
