ACTORS of all stripes have brought their bands to Savannah over the years—anybody remember when Frankie Muniz’s band played Taco Abajo? How about that performance from Gary Sinise’s cover band, Lt. Dan Band, at the band shell in Forsyth Park? If you find yourself squinting at the members of Post Animal in recognition, know that yes, that’s Joe Keery, better known as Steve Harrington on Netflix’s Stranger Things, on guitar.
Chicago’s Post Animal has been releasing music since 2015. Their perky psychedelia brings to mind favorites like Tame Impala with strong melodies, dreamy swells, and unusual layering.
Their latest single, “Special Moment,” with its tight dance beat and crisp, airy vocals, hearkens Athens psych titans of Montreal and early ‘60s grooves. It’s a perfect addition to your summer playlist, whether you’re turning hot dogs on the grill or waxing down your surfboard.
