Blood Moon by Animal Feelings
Here’s a lovely chilled disco track. And it’s an Acid Ted exclusive. Animal Feelings is New York’s Oli Chang. Blood Moon includes all manner of warping and tweaking to the various vocals but they are sparse enough to complement the track, rather than detract. At the heart of the track are some soft, deep European synths that carry it along in balmy seas on warm currents. Drift away to this…
Blurb: ANIMAL FEELINGS is New York-based artist Oli Chang’s latest musical experiment. Highly collaborative in spirit, the album evokes a mad-capped, improvisational dance party with a set list that ranges from the melodic-driven European disco classics of Todd Terje to the seductive rock and soul mash up of Hall & Oates. This is music you want to move to: emotionally resonant interludes and aggressive bass drops are paired with twisted vocal and electronic accents that will invariably induce dance floor euphoria. As a gifted lyricist and producer attuned to the zeitgeist, Chang’s ANIMAL FEELINGS deftly switches gears, going from sprawling ambient songs to dark but fun electro pop gems.
Oli Chang is most known for the celebrated ambient dream-pop of High Highs, a long-running collaboration with Jack Milas. His last electronic music project was called Theatre Of Disco, which was one of Australian label Future Classic’s first signings. Chang was drawn back to dance music whilst writing High Highs second album. During this time he also started “LOVELESS NIGHTS,” a cult, wildly diverse dance party held at Kinfolk 94 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, which also served as a testing ground and incubator for ANIMAL FEELINGS.
