Beautiful Thing - Animal

Beautiful Thing are a UK alternative soul group led by singer songwriter Joseph Bernie and guitarist Lucas Polo. They have been developing over the past two years and are known for their soaring vocals and widescreen sound.

The group return with their second single, ’Animal’, produced by the same team that carefully crafted the band's debut ‘Waiting’: Sean Genockey (Shame, Roger Daltrey), Faithless drummer Andy Treacey and Belgian guitarist-producer Jo Cassiers.

The song's theme weighs heavily around sexual desire, much to the detriment of the narrator, the toxicity of the relationship is clear, though asks the question; can pleasure outweigh pain? A classic pop chorus boasts a more commercial appeal than the outfit's debut single, a sprawling underground journey of trip hop, yet retains the musicians ear for nuance and a groove that begs to be blasted out of your car stereo on a night time drive.

Featuring Magpie Salute singer John Hogg on bass guitar locking in with Andy Treacey on the backbeat, 'Animal' builds to a beautiful ethereal moment that gives Joseph’s voice room to explore the atmosphere before crashing back to earth in explosive fashion.

Regularly collaborating with the players of London’s musical underground and now Detroit following a months trip to the USA in January, the band will be curating different shows with their new found friends, in the lead up to festival season, incorporating spoken word, poetry performance art and dance into their live experience.

Animal will be released Friday 29th March 2019 via AWAL
