PREMIERE: Animalism's primal take on city pop melancholia with 'Growing Lights'

PREMIERE: Animalism's primal take on city pop melancholia with 'Growing Lights'

The pastel, subdued colors on its artwork is very much an indication of what you're going into with Animalism, a psychedelic-pop unit from Indonesia.

It's take on electronic psychedelia is very much framed by their urban surroundings, but turns away from the disarray of a bustling environment while remaining fixated at its constant stream. On the surface, it's pop music distilled its core — a simple hook and disarming melodies is all it takes for 'Growing Lights' to get stuck in your head.

Its guitars are treated to airy and free-flowing production, but the sanitization of its verse-chorus form makes it a breezy listen worth repeated plays in a car ride at sunset. 

The single has also gotten the remix treatment, with two producers from Jakarta expanding the meditative qualities of the original song's production.

'Growing Lights' will officially be released by Double Deer Records on May 20th.
