After years of teasing fans with nothing but single releases, the New York based Animal Reporters are finally rewarding their audiences with a debut EP, the cheekily, appropriately titled Lights, Camera, Animals.
The five piece band, featuring Dave Gelb on lead vocals and guitar, Johnny Marx on keys, the Van Deusen brothers, Colin and Chris, on bass and guitar and Eric Sands on the drums, has become known for a sound that blends the raw spontaneity of garage rock with a distinctive blues strut.
“Little Mama,” the first single off of their EP, is a fun, funky track with a slinky infusion of the blues, perfect for getting a little down and dirty on the dance floor. Paired with sexy lyrics that celebrate love, lust and debauchery, you may find yourself turning this jam up to an eleven the next time you let loose.
Keep on the lookout for upcoming spring shows around New York City, including a June 10th show at Fontana’s, and download “Little Mama” for free via Soundcloud below!
