Imperial Leisure – Animal
|Imperial Leisure - Animal|
Release Date: Out Now
London based alt-ska combo Imperial Leisure have been around for a while now and they frequently blip up on my radar so I was pretty excited to see their new single ‘Animal’ pop up in my inbox. Starting with trademark energy fuelled by horns that you might expect of a ska band but the angular riffs and rhythms are something more akin to Arctic Monkeys or Tankus the Henge. The stabs of luxurious organ are pure Madness while the breathless vocal is lung bustingly impressive and there’s a chorus just ripe for a good old sing along in a bouncing festival tent with sun and cider drenching your clothes in equal measure. A funky little trumpet solo kicks this one over the line and has my feet twitching on first listen. Definitely one for your summer road trip playlist.
