Je suis animal

BandPopAlternative

Je suis animal was formed in 2004 by ex-art school students sharing a love for catchy indie pop with psychedelic and experimental elements. They make light melodic pop songs which at the same time have a depth - a hidden dark secret

Biography

Featuring former members from earlier established indie bands, they have from the beginning had a desire to create unique music. They have a common fascination for the extraordinary - with songs about magic, primitive art, murder mysteries, sex, espionage and levitation.

In the winter of 2006 Je suis animal locked themselves into a community hall in a remote area of southern Norway. Incarcerated, due to heavy snowfall and the risk of being eaten alive by wild bears, they recorded their debut album "Self-Taught Magic From A Book".

The album was released in Norway on February 18th 2008 on Perfect Pop Records and received fantastic reviews. On June 14th the album will be released in Australia on Lost & Lonesome Recordings (who have previously licensed The Aislers Set and The Ladybug Transistor)

Je suis animal have played many concerts in 2007, including support slots for The Ladybug Transistor, Still Flyin', Serena Maneesh, The Icypoles, Ungdomskulen and The Clientele. In the summer they travelled to London to play The End Of The Road festival club day, and later returned to the UK to play The Dream Machine festival.
