Shearwater - Animal Joy

“Animal Joy” is the eagerly awaited eighth studio album by the American indie rock band Shearwater. This record is the follow up to their self-published seventh studio album “Shearwater is Enron” which was released in 2010. Shearwater's music can be described as the quiet before the storm with understated yet beautifully overlapped and textured melodies weaving in and out with each other to create an almost ethereal sweep of light yet powerful undulated music.

Stand out tracks include “Breaking the Yearlings” a stormy stomping song with a hefty bass rhythm behind it that will flow through you and take your breath away. The heavy melodies are up-tempo and energetic and combined with the incredible distinctive and somewhat haunting vocals of lead singer Jonathan Meiburg.

Another stand out track would have to be “You As You Were” a beautiful song played out primarily with piano melody which swells into a positive and upbeat tone accompanied by ghostly backing vocals and drums. “Animal Joy” is a testament to the years (over a dozen) that Shearwater have both existed and created music together.

Staying true to their wonderful and talented melodic roots this band manages to progress and grow with age just enough to keep their music interesting and different to anything else you're likely to hear. Absolutely brilliant.(Cat Emerson)
