Track Review: Briscoe. - Animal

Briscoe. are an exciting and prospective indie pop band from Australia. They're a six piece and are on the verge of releasing their debut album, distributed by MGM, the place where all the hip and fortunate Australian independent artists flock to. What we have is a single with elegance and satisfaction that leaves the listener with a wanting desire for more. This track is pleasantly surprising because it's actually quite good.

"Animal" opens with a rather simple acoustic guitar riff and a killer opening lyric. What comes next is quite spectacular for a debut single. The chorus kicks in and the 60s pop-esque sounds come flooding through. The piano, the light bass and the acoustic guitar are all perfect and match with the lead guitars easy laidback sound. Think The Beatles when they were good in the late 60s / early 70s.  This is the sort of track you can imagine hearing in a montage scene in a Hollywood movie. A highly important and rich business man is left by his wife; and he's just wandering the streets of New York City, brilliant.
