Necessary Animals return to Aldora Britain Records once again. This time, we welcome them back with their brand new single 'Walking To Babylon'. This selection is the follow up to their Animalia LP, released in November 2021.

'Walking To Babylon' is a worldly sonic adventure with an abundance of colour and psychedelia. Its rumbling intro will intrigue listeners and draw them in with mysterious wonder. The vocals are precise and direct, adding to this unfolding soundscape. Throughout the song's duration, Necessary Animals touch on world music, ska rhythms, jazz shuffles, and an overriding space-bound sensibility. It is a composition that is slightly confused, but that is its brilliance. It is something different and it seeks brand new sonic territories.

For fans of PJ Harvey, The Horrors, Temples, and The Strokes.
