Plants and Animals: The Jungle (album review by Christa V.)

Plants and Animals is an indie band with a chill vibe. All of their songs sound very relaxed with cool beats and minimal lyrics letting the instrumental groove shine. Their best song though, “House on Fire,” is the least chill with fun synth parts that turn it into a bop. As a result is ends up being very danceable! The second track, “Love That Boy,” is probably the best example of their hallmark style with some melody in the vocal part, but overall keeping it relaxed. Another piece to highlight is “Le Queens,” a song entirely in French! It’s hard to place this one, the vocals are clear and melodic but almost sound like a whisper. This is contrasted with electric and nearly industrial sounds surrounding the words. It’s the most enigmatic song for sure, and highlights what Plants and Animals can do with their talents. Favorite tracks: 2, 3, 6
