Animal Hands

Roaring Girle (CD Single)

Review by Gary Hill

When I reviewed the recent EP from Animal Hands I thought that they showed a lot of promise, but needed to develop more of a unique sound. I’d say that this single is evidence that it’s in the works. As good as that EP was, this is superior to it in every way.

Track by Track Review
Roaring Girle

The music on this is a blend of modern and old school, fuzz drenched psychedelia. Yet it’s got a real catchy sound and is just infectious. The piece is really pretty complex, moving through contrasting sections. Yet, it doesn’t lose any kind of cohesiveness or catchiness in the process. As always the female vocals are in fine form. I’d suggest you get this disc as soon as you can. It’s a great song and a great introduction to Animal Hands.

(Editor's Note - Music Street Journal is set up for the allocation of albums, not singles - particularly not one-song singles. So, in the instances, like this one, where we've covered single song releases, we've had to make some adaptations for formatting. In the case of this one, just imagine both track review and overall review reading as one set of copy. )
