Here's the debut album of ANIMAUX FORMIDABLES, a sensual and explosive masked power duo formed in early 2022, surely one of the best things to emerge from the Italian musical underground over the past few months. We are talking about two characters with animal-like features, fed so far on glam, blues, and rock ‘n roll. They express themselves with a garage-fuzz-noise sound at an extremely fiery level, both on record and on stage, the band’s natural habitat.
Say the artists on the genesis of the album: “Our producer Marco Fasolo, who first listened to some of our stuff recorded with a smartphone in the rehearsal room, encouraged us to reproduce the live sound on the record. So we did a single live take for each song, recording in two rooms divided by glass to avoid feedback. No overdubbing or post-production processing was done. In this way what you hear is the essence of who we are, how we compose and perform our music, with all our deep passion and expressive urgency”.
The album features ten tracks and was self-released on CD and digital on February 24, 2023. The two singles 'Unfair' and the title track 'We Are All Animals' preluded the release with two amazing official videos produced by Monocromostudio, able to capture the unique artistic imagery, aesthetics, and live attitude of Animaux Formidables.
The colored vinyl edition of We Are All Animals is due out via Go Down Records on June 30 and the new official video clip for 'Just A Monday' is also on the way.
