ANIMAUX FORMIDABLES is a garage-fuzz-noise duo consisting of percussion and guitar/vocals, formed in Turin in early 2022. The idea is to unleash a visceral, raw, and basic instinct putting themselves in the shoes of two animal-like characters, who have constantly been fed on glam-rock, blues, and R’n’R.
The ten tracks on their debut album were recorded by Marco Fasolo (Jennifer Gentle, I Hate My Village) in three live studio sessions in 2022. The title We Are All Animals is the band's manifesto. “After all, we are all animals” is the pragmatic key point of Animaux Formidables, as well as the leitmotif of their project's imagery and its underlying provocation.
“We are animals, but we forget that. We slumbered instincts, we reduced our motor and neuronal capacities, and we are subjugated by archetypes and social status. We wear masks daily to hide our real nature, our soul”.
