Post Animal know how to pull wonder out of uncertainty. The five musicians have spent seven years harnessing a remarkable fluidity, different band members taking the lead vocals for any given song, the rest juggling harmonies, instruments, writing, and production duties. Rather than be deterred when the pandemic abruptly ended their 2020 US tour and hampered their ability to collaborate in person, Dalton Allison, Jake Hirshland, Javier Reyes, Wesley Toledo, and Matthew Williams found a new way to connect their surrealist mosaic. After months of demoing ideas in their respective homes, they finally came back together at Hirshland’s family farm. The quintet walked up the farmhouse’s front steps—the same steps where eight years earlier they’d named the band—going home to ground their brotherhood in a way that no other location could offer. Ten days later they’d created a new language, Love Gibberish (due May 13), a record that indulges in retro influences while pushing at the edges of modernity, relishing joy in the mess, a neon cityscape rising out of a fog of nostalgia. By opting to release the album independently, self-producing, and having Allison mix and engineer, Post Animal embraced a new adventure that pushes their creative vision deeper into the stratosphere while maintaining their hold on the complexities of reality. “This album takes us back to how it felt before we ever thought we’d be an actual touring band, with no expectations for ourselves,” Williams says. “Now, we’re inside the gibberish-ness of life, trying to figure out what we need to survive.”
