Philadelphia Bandcamp Hunter: Elegant Animals

Elegant Animals is a new electronic-, soul-, and R&B-influenced band from Philly. The band just released its Spectrum Nocturnal EP, which you can download for free. The band includes Jules Kazys on vocals and Brandon Shockley on guitar. The excellent production on the record uses samples and warm keyboards, with hints of dub step influenced rhythms. Spectrum Nocturnal is a terrific collection that musically connects the dots between the dark electronic soul of The Weeknd, the intimacy of James Blake, and the Quiet Storm jams of The Isley Brothers. Highly recommended.
