“I’m liking how there’s some dreamy sorta slacker sounds to go with your catchy and ferocious punk elements. big one!” [About ‘Where’s My Mind Been?’]
(Declan Byrne, Triple J)“The interjecting vocal yelps really brought this one to life. Living up to its name of fire and ice type too.” (Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J)
“A slowburn of an indie punk track, combining some really nice sonic elements! Can defs sense that Weezer influence, we love to hear it.” 4 / 5 stars (Pip Rasmussen, Triple J)
“With each and every one of their tracks, the Adelaide based alt-rockers have struck gold, leaving us to seriously question just what magic tricks they have up their sleeves.”(Hysteria Mag)“A slow tempo, anthemic number that gives the parting middle finger salute to an ex-partner moving out.” (Heavy Mag)
“Nocturnal Animals pack a punch with their raw alt-rock/punk sound” (Aus Music Scene)
Nocturnal Animals dropped their ferocious single ‘Dancing In The Blood’ the other week and are now spilling more blood with the accompanying music video.
Pairing with the high-voltage punk anthem that explores the sexual tension that is built up on the dance floor, these animals are turning up the gore in this nightmare of a clip that is fitting for the title of this number.
As Nocturnal Animals blast out their track on the stage, a couple makes a late entrance to this underground nightclub. Ignorantly, the male protagonist is way too far ahead of himself but soon realises his egomaniac ways have landed him in a frenzied bloodbath. The band states:
“The music video tells the tale of a young man out on the town, who finds himself with a girl heading to an exclusive club. In his mind, it’s all going smoothly but… he’s in for a ‘bloody’ surprise.”
Dripping in blood release after release with their unapologetic punk-rock energy, Nocturnal Animals are seriously solidifying themselves in the scene. Most recently they supported DZ Deathrays, but now the band are heading on their very first interstate tour, playing in Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.
‘Dancing In The Blood’ and the accompanying music video are out now. Find more tour details below.
