Album: We Met At Sea (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • The first single from The Pigeon Detectives' fourth studio album was initially released as a free download via the bands website, before being made available for sale from January 28, 2013.
  • Frontman Matt Bowman said: "'Animal' is one of those songs that we knew would work well in front of a live audience as soon as we started writing it. It's an exciting tune with a raw sinister edge to it, but it still retains all the catchiness usually associated with The Pigeon Detectives. We all agreed it was the song to set our stall out with and the in your face guitars is a statement of intent."
