These Animals are four wild and charming creatures from the urban jungle in the great city of New York. Their music is just as diverse as the jungle itself. Imagine dreamy guitar soundscapes crossed with a motown dancy rythm section. Sounds weird? Well, listen for yourself and discover a mix

The boys met while attending art school in New York where they studied studio production for music. Their personal musical journey as a band began with a songwriting project in the early months of 2010. After a few lineup changes, These Animals came to be described as a “supergroup” of bands in their college circuit, hailing Greg Baldwin and Brian Crimmins from Greg Baldwin & The Aesthetics, Jon Rick from Wyldlife, and Will Whatley, from seemingly every band at the college.
