Performer is thrilled to present the exclusive first listen for the new track “Give it Up” by one of our fave guitar-based bands from Brooklyn, Animal Years. The track comes fresh of the group’s upcoming EP (due out early 2016), and you can catch them live tomorrow night at Rough Trade in NYC for a big single release bash. More details and ticket info right here.
“With Give It Up I just wanted to make light out of a situation that involves two people who can’t seem to communicate to each other what is bothering them. Instead of telling each other the truth, they dance around the real issues while things just get worse and worse. I thought if the lyrics were gonna be kind of dark I definitely wanted to make the music upbeat so that’s what I did,” says singer/guitarist Mike McFadden.
Enjoy the song, and sound off in the comments below! And don’t forget to follow the band on Twitter.
