Welsh alternative band We Are Animal have released their new single ‘Capoeira’. Its a gritty dark edgy track smothered in murky fuzz and eerie tones. Elastic depth on bass and rooted beat gives the track a sensual luring quality and repetitive psychedelic feel. Haunting raspy vocals add a spooky hair raising quality while enticing and drawing the listener into the shadowy gravelly depths of the track. Shredding guitar brings the track to its crescendo adding intensity and ferocity. The sweet catchy melody is hypnotising and seeps into your mind leaving you like a willing zombie mindlessly singing along. Distorted instrumental feature is hair-raisingly chilling and scratchy, it reminds me of a nervous person uncontrollably scratching an itch that doesn’t exist. ‘Capoeira’ is a mind numbing piece of well crafted alternative rock blended with psychedelia.
