Despite the inclusion of members from Spain and France, The Florescents are a band with their music roots planted firmly in the UK. Self-confessed as ‘loud and dangerous with infectious beats’, the lads embody that classic rock’n’roll vigour of yester-year with their own unique medley of strutting guitar lines and alluring vocals.
‘Animals’ sees the band in their most alluring of struts, as vocalist and guitarist Nick East vents about his sense of complacency and frustration. ‘I need a drink/ I need a smoke’ he informs us before divulging into a lament on the likes of his lack of productivity. The answer? ‘I wanna be an animal!’. Both East and the instrumentation becomes increasingly feral as the track progresses and evolves into something which, in every possible sense, is way beyond taming.
