You need this in your life. Ceramic Animal are your new favourite band.
Ceramic Animal have released a new single, Up In Smoke along with a companion music video directed by Bob Sweeney and shot cinema verité style around their hometown. ‘Up In Smoke’ takes you on a forlorn, lonesome journey that shows how the feeling of isolation can seep into every aspect of life,” says lead singer, Chris Regan. “The upbeat instrumentation creates a necessary dichotomy and acts as a sign of hope. There is always a chance to break out from the hold of solitude.”
The band recently announced the release of their new album, Sweet Unknown, due out March 4th. The album will be the first release for new label home Easy Eye Sound.
Late last year Ceramic Animal also released the album’s title track and accompanying music video directed by Ford Fairchild. Sweet Unknown was produced by Dan Auerbach.
Ceramic Animal hails from historic Doylestown, Pennsylvania, about an hour north of Philadelphia. The band features a trio of brothers—Chris Regan (vocals, guitar), Erik Regan (drums) and Elliott Regan (vocals, keys)—along with childhood friend Anthony Marchione (guitar) and Dallas Hosey (vocals, bass).
A guitar band of the highest-order with an acute focus on songwriting, they fuse post-punk, psych and 70’s pop together in a sound not too far from contemporaries like The War On Drugs, Strand of Oaks or fellow Pennsylvania artist, Kurt Vile.
