Nocturnal Animals - Passive Tone

Nocturnal animals, an Adelaide/Tarndanya three-piece. has already garnered considerable local support, landing support gigs with the DZ Deathrays, The Buoys, Nerve, and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets. They create a powerful sound from fuzzy guitars, heavy-handed drumming, and anthemic punk vocals.

Their latest song, "Passive Tone," (from their awaited debut EP–’Paint A Picture’, out November 4). begins with a melancholy acoustic guitar and arpeggiating chords that allude to an impending eruption of resentment. The force of the drums forces you to move away from the folks who are dragging you down and their passive hostility. The song encourages you to get yourself up by your bootstraps by transforming the annoyance and discomfort of being treated inanely into a punk march.

What I really like about the song Passive Tone is the crystalline sound and also the contrast between the different atmospheres, sounding sometimes pop (the beginning), some others pure punk with super heavy guitars and an angry mood. The song is very interesting, very original, amazingly produced, written and performed by Nocturnal animals. Give it a go by clicking on the Spotify player below and don't forget to follow the band on social media as well.
