Megafauna is a female fronted indie rock outift that creates riff-heavy, shred-friendly electromagnetic vibrations.

Biography

Megafauna is the brainchild of Connecticut born shredder, Dani Neff. Dani moved to Austin, Texas in 2008, after graduating from Yale. Dani started Megafauna within weeks of moving to Austin. She then played and toured with Megafauna while attending the University of Texas Law School. She is now a practicing Entertainment lawyer as well as a favorite guitarist and front-woman in the national underground.

In 2009 and 2010, the band recorded their first LP, Larger than Human. The album was met with positive reviews here and in France, Switzerland and Belgium.

In 2011, Megafauna recorded their second LP, Surreal Estate, with Erik Wofford at Cacophony Recorders. Due to a lineup change, the album was never officially released.

In 2012, Dani recruited friend and drummer, Zack Humphrey and local bass legend, Greg Yancey. In his spare time, Greg constructs basses and is an electrical engineer who produces computer chips.

In June of 2013, the band recorded "Already Born" at Matchbox Studios. It is set to be released on Tuesday, October 8th.

Megafauna has teamed up with local label Eye in the Sky Collective and Team Clermont, an independent radio promotion company to promote the release. The band will be touring relentlessly for the next year in support of the album.

Lyrics

Warm House

Written By: Danielle Neff

She left at 3:15.
Skin stiff and movements purposeful.
She's going back to a warm bubble house.

Close your eyes.
Pray for a cure.
Loveless Day.
Loveless Day.

Her eyes still shine of the news she'd acquired.
Shifts down, so much abandoning.
She never knew what the right context was.

Close your eyes.
Pray for a cure.
Loveless Day.
Loveless Day.

She's running. She's running out.
She's running. She's running out.

She said the streets were hotter before,
with globs of art and mad color.
She's going back to a warm bubble house.

Close your eyes.
Pray for a cure.
Loveless day.
Loveless day.

She's running. She's running out.
She's running. She's running out.

Touch the Lion (Tim Palmer Mix)

Written By: Megafauna

Do you hear what they say.
You could win an endless holiday.
The sky is gonna catch on fire.
All we need is one match.
Touch the Lion.
Energize Your Spirit.
Don't you want to grab
at everyone
with the rioting
who will notice.
Touch the Lion.
Energize your Spirit.
