Plants And Animals serenade with a throwback sound that is somehow still very modern and unique. Their 2008 debut CD Release Parc Avenue, has been their ticket to tour with acts like Gnarls Barkley, and the Whigs, and has earned them a nomination for Canada’s esteemed Polaris Music Prize. Their sound is difficult to describe, sometimes epic, at others indie, and occasionally even theatrical – – there are flourishes of auto-harp in some songs forcryinoutloud!
It is refreshing to have a band interject a refreshing, well-executed sound in the ‘sea of sameness’ that today’s music scene can sometimes become. Take a gander at the Plants and Animals in action!
