Fellow Indie Shufflers, I have a treat for all you today. Enter Animal Years, the roaring four-piece Americana folk/rock band hailing from the one and only Brooklyn. These guys could bring down an entire arena with their smooth ringing guitars and frontman's Mike McFadden's hyponotizing vocals. Seriously, this guy has vocals that will fly you to a whole 'nother universe.
Today they're premiering the track "Leah" in anticipation of their upcoming album release Sun Will Rise on May 6th. "Leah" has such a feel good vibe about it, and makes you want to burst out singing while driving with the windows down. McFadden's voice is as smooth as butter, and perfectly accompanied by Anthony Spinnato on the drums. Matthew Indellicati does wonders with the guitar once the song hits the 3 minute mark, and with Anthony Saladino on the bass.
Animal Years has a few shows lined up for Spring: they'll be playing at the Black Cat in D.C. on May 7th, and the Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 2) on May 10th in New York. Follow the group's journey on Twitter and pre-order their album out next month.
