Post Animal is a newer psychedelic rock band that formed out of Chicago, Illinois. With the short time period since the band was created in 2015, they have released one full-length and a few singles. Post Animal Perform the Most Curious Water Activities is the band’s first full-length that features seven tracks that must be listened to individually with each track telling its’ own tale. With a mix between Tame Impala, heavy metal and 60s psychedelia, Post Animal’s songs stay true to their groove and keep it diverse. The band has a total of six members: Dalton Allison on bass, Jake Hirshland on guitar and keys, Wesley Toledo on drums and Javi Reyes, Matt Williams and Joe Keery are all on guitar.
As many of you may or may not know, that Joe Keery is Steve Harrington off Netflix’s Stranger Things. Yes, that’s right. The jock with the big hair in the 80s-based show is in Post Animal, and he shows off his great hair too. Along with Keery, the rest of the band mates strut their luscious locks on stage as well. Many of the band’s tracks sound like they contain a dose of Stranger Things, as if the music belongs on the creepy series. This summer will be Post Animal’s first nationwide tour.
