Foreign Air Unleash Their Inner Wilderness With ‘Free Animal’ [Stream]

Foreign Air – Free Animal


Opening with a driving bass line and spare, sampled aesthetics, the debut single of mysterious American artist Foreign Air is a dark and ethereal glimpse into an animalistic heart. It rides a monotone wave until the melodic chorus crests fully, shivering with trap beats and gliding synths as the vocals proclaim, “I’m a free animal, free animal.” Accompanied by bursts of wordless vocalizations, gasps and growls that convey a harshness appropriate to the lyrics, the atmospheric song pulses forwards relentlessly. Reminiscent of the Alt J and Sylvan Esso, “Free Animal” is a brooding track that would sound right at home on your winter playlists. It’s an impressive first outing for Foreign Air, and we’re excited to see where they take their connection with their inner animal.
