Hello and welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR! This week on the show I’m Animal Spirit, a four piece indie-rock collective based out of Fort Worth, Texas. I’ll be spinning their debut self-titled release in anticipation of their follow-up record that will be coming out later this year.
I got a chance to talk with founding member principal songwriter Andrew Stroheker. We chat about how he left his home in California and moved to Texas not knowing anyone, and ended up forming a band from Craigslist. Now the members are best friends, and the other vocalist Sam is his fiancee! Talk about a family affair, and you can really hear the connection in the music. Don’t take my word for it, check it out for yourself!
Don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on Animal Spirit!
