Brighton-based four-piece Will & The People are one of those bands everyone should know by now, bringing festive alternative rock hits to every room and festival field since one of their first online releases in 2016. The band are back with the release of their new single ‘Animal’ which goes accompanied with an animalistic video.
It is loud and energetic, punchy and with strong vocals as well as vocal harmonies. The single is a festive and uplifting, eclectic blend of a sound we already knew and a sound we aren’t yet quite familiar with. It is something different, a more modern sound an with elements that are rather in your face, hard to ignore. Will ^ The People know how to get the attention and prove this again with ‘Animal’.
About the track, the band say: “It’s the arch nemesis of the “cancel culture” world we live in today. It’s about primitive acceptance. It’s about desires, social conformity and was written to hit very hard, like our actions do when they come back and bite us.” Topical and on-point, Will & The People hit the nail on the head and show that they are still relevant as ever.
