Via Audio: Animalore

Brooklyn pop band Via Audio covers a lot of ground. On their Animalore album a slide guitar driven love song (Wanted) sit comfortably next to funky eighties dance music inspired tracks like Babies, Tigers, and Digital, which sounds like a lost track by Depeche Mode. And Oh Blah Wee is a sped-up poppy Americana ditty.

All members met at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. With their schooling they picked up a lot tricks and influences, but their sound is very much their own - if push comes to shove they go for smart pop songs grounded in adventurous rhythms.
