Half the Animalhave been on hyper-speed since the spring. After months in the studio with Captain Cuts (Walk the Moon, Iconapop), HTA released their first single of 2018 this May, “Too Late.” Quietly on its way to a million streams, “Too Late” is a preview of what’s in store from the HTA and Cuts mind-meld. Now Half The Animalreturns with an electrifying new single, “Magic”, a rhythmic ensemble filled with feel-good synths and a lot of swag. Fresh out of the tour with the guys from Smallpools this spring, Half The Animal is taking off now on a joint tour with Lovelytheband and friends. So make sure to check out the dates below.
“Magic” is the first glimpse into HTA’s debut project Automatic America – an exploration of a generation stuck in limbo: nostalgic for the innocence of a pre-Internet childhood, wrestling with the technology-obsessed society of today, and searching for intimacy, authenticity, and meaning in a digital simulacrum. When not on the road, the band is in the studio with Captain Cuts finishing up Automatic America, due in 2019.
