Animal Flag

Animal Flag are a four-piece indie/alternative rock band from Boston, Massachusetts that got started in 2008. They play a darker, moodier form of indie/alt. rock, similar to bands such as All Get Out, Manchester Orchestra, Brand New, and even Bright Eyes. Animal Flag just released their latest album, LP, on Broken World Media. It's a compilation of two EP's they put out in 2014 and 2015. This was my introduction to them, and it's a fantastic introduction no doubt. Sonically, it's got a very similar vibe to that of The People's Key, with a little less electronics and a little more post-rock influence. The band uses melodic guitar parts to compliment some fantastic vocals with very confessional lyrics. It's a highly recommended listen, no doubt. I can't really say anything about their other material, since I admittedly haven't gotten around to hearing them. However, if LP is any indication of what they're like, I'm certainly looking forward to them. Enjoy.
