Utilizing a non-linear approach to their songwriting and production that captivates audiences, Half The Animal embraces diversity throughout the EP. ‘SHAPES’ embodies the emotional spectrum of a storied past and introduces us to the multidimensional sound we will come to know. “We believe that no single song should or ever have to feel the same, and we want to establish that tone early on,” says bassist Evan Smith. “We hope that this first release will give listeners an understanding of what the future holds for this band.”

Perhaps the name of the EP describes just that- an idea that an alternative pop rock band can take on multiple forms and multiple shapes– leaving an intriguing anticipation for what lies next around the corner. Today, Half The Animal is premiering the acoustic version of “Saturday Night” exclusively with NKD Mag. “‘Saturday Night’ is the classic ‘knowing something is wrong and doing it anyway’ because it’s more fun than the alternative,” frontman Chase Johnson says, “Human instinct meets animal instinct. Whether it be love, lust, or anything. I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all been there before.”
