SINGLE REVIEW: Lawson – Animals

British favourites Lawson are excitingly back after a brief hiatus, and they aren’t toying around with giving their fans the new music that they’ve been patiently waiting for.

‘Animals’ is the second offering from the beginning of this new chapter for the dynamic four-piece. Stepping away from the tropical pop sonic of their comeback single ‘Lovers’, they’ve delivered something that feels more mature and naturally engaging.

Embracing that nostalgic 80’s pop sound that is creeping back into commercial music, they’ve given you layers of polished guitar riffs with synth interpolations and smooth pop vocals. It feels natural and doesn’t sound forced like ‘Lovers’ slightly did. 

Exploring the genuine electricity behind falling in love with someone, they capture those giddy emotions that we are all so equally infatuated and scared by. 

“Giving it up is just impossible. This kind of love, it feels unstoppable” they sing during the groovy hook. 

‘Animals’ is a fun and engaging pop track that instills a bit of experimentation into their sonic after ‘Lovers’ which just continued what they were releasing before their hiatus. This gives us a fresh new perspective to where the bands sonical trajectory could go in which is similar to 5 Seconds Of Summer, and I’m vibing.
