Slow, sweeping, dramatic single and live favourite, ‘Graze’ by Animal Collective is part of their five track studio EP ‘Fall Be Kind’. With an epic build up, followed by clapping, white noise and what sounds like panpipes, this experimental but lighthearted style showcases the band’s skill as songwriters as well as musicians.
Second track ‘What Would I Want? Sky’ invites us to relax among the layered vocals in a richly percussive world.
‘Merriweather post Pavilion’ was named one of the most important albums of the decade by Q Magazine, and listening to this thoughtful EP, it is easy to see why as Animal Collective reach new heights.
“Fall Be Kind” is out now
