ANIIMALIA: new music video
ANIIMALIA RELEASE BRAND NEW VIDEO
FOR SECOND TRACK
FORTHCOMING EP “PRESSURE POINTS” OUT AUGUST 19th
ANIIMALIA unveils its second taster of the new EP in the form of new single “Alien”. The track opens the brand new EP “Pressure Points”, set for August 19th via Marshall Records.
Alongside the single the band have unveiled their brand new video. Watch above!
The video, shot once again by Loki Films sees the band look at the idea of paranoia surrouding what others perceive of us, the video is the perfect visual representation of this anxiety inducing phenomenon and the fierce presence that the band create.
Regarding the track ANIIMALIA had the following to say: “
‘Alien’ was an exciting opportunity to experiment with our sound and imagery. We wrote the song relatively early on as a band, so when it came to recording we definitely jumped on the opportunity to expand it into a huger and more extraterrestrial sound. It was important to stay true to our energy but also focus on the storytelling aspect, which was originally inspired by a lot of Sci-Fi films and TV, but developed into something a lot deeper”.
The band continue: “The lyrics ended up reflecting the kind of paranoia a lot of us experience, especially related to anxiety, surrounding what other people think of us, and an obsession with reputation as a whole. It’s something that was a personal struggle at the time, but also really noticeable in the world around us – everyone’s become a lot more aware of the world and skeptical of each other”.
“Alien” builds upon the Metalcore / Rock sensibilities of previously single “Silver Linings” and showcases that the band aren’t content with merely churning out the same content.
With one foot firmly in the Metal camp and the other rooted in the world of Pop, ANIIMALIA straddle a fine line of song writing craft. The track, taken from the EP, was produced, mixed and mastered by the renowned Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon / Nova Twins / Funeral For A Friend).
