Beat The Radar - Animals

by Katy Ledger Rating:3.5 Release Date:2010-11-25

'Animals' is the latest single from a slimmed down Beat the Radar who, having lost a bassist, are now a three-piece. Their debut album To the City from the Sea was full of energy and pace and was an exciting first offering from the Manchester-based band. They've yet to confirm a second album but hopefully this single isn't a taste of things to come.

'Animals' is pretty much your bog-standard indie pop song. It's innocuous and inoffensive but it's as dull as dishwater. With Cribs style vocals, a simple sounding structure, cute but prattling lyrics and a really lazy tempo, 'Animals' fails to pack the punch of their earlier singles. There's a short moment towards the end where it seems like something vaguely interesting is happening, but by then it's too late, I'm already mid-way through a yawn. It's not bad, it's just really bland.
