These Animals are from New York City, so I imagine that their location is a fairly big influence on their music. Unfortunately I’m not very familiar with other bands from NYC apart from InAshton, though their musical style is actually quite similar. I’m going to say that is no coincidence.
A little bit more about These Animals, courtesy of the write-up on Aaahh Records: as mentioned, they’re a quartet from New York City. Apparently, they met at an art school, having played in several different bands. These Animals is somewhat of a “supergroup” put together from all these other bands.
And what’s more, Aaahh Recodrs and These Animals have offered up tracks for you to remix! Well, specifically one song – “Four to the Floor”. You can get more information here, and also on the Aaahh Records remix section.
