Stranger Things is the gift that keeps on giving. Hot on the heels of the British actress who plays Eleven [Millie Bobby Brown] posting a host of YouTube karaoke cover versions comes the revelation that the dude who plays Steve – aka a young Jean Ralphio from Parks and Recreation– is in a psych band.
His name’s Joe Keery and his band are called Post Animal, and they’re based in Chicago. Intrigued? Well, you should be, as they’re actually rather good. Their last album, the wonderfully titled ‘Post Animal Perform The Most Curious Water Activities’ came out in October 2015. You can listen to all seven tracks over at Bandcamp – where you can also buy it for the bargain price of $5.
If you want a more recent peek into the musicial minds of Steve and co, then check out their most recent single, ‘Caught In The Trap’/ ‘Violet’ only came out in June of this year. It’s fair to say that Tame Impala are a pretty big influence on Post Animal’s swirling sounds, which can be big and beefy when they want to and all weird and twee, like something Syd Barrett’s found at the bottom of the garden, the next.
