Wild Animals forms in 2014, clearly influenced by ’90 punk and indie music and its characteristic guitar fuzz, melodic vocals and energetic rhythms. That same year, Jamie R. Green (guitar and vocals), Paula Sánchez-Lafuente (drums and vocals) and Fon Álvarez (bass), decide to start the band after moving to Madrid from their hometowns. In December of that same year the band record their first EP “First Songs”, quickly gaining recognition both nationally and throughout Europe thanks to a good number of concerts in Spain and two tours around the continent. As the bands career moves forward, their live performances grow more energetic, proven in their first LP “Basements: Music To Fight Hypocrisy”, recorded at the Ultramarinos Costabrava studios (Sant Feliu de Guíxols) by Santi García. The album, to be released this may, 2016, has the support of Spanish labels BCore Disc, La Agonía de Vivir and Pífia Records, as well as seven other labels around the world (Strictly no capital letters, Inhumano Records, Dingleberry, Epidemic Records, Good Post Day Records, Waterslide Records and One Wild Collective).
Since they started, Wild Animals have moved within the DIY and punk culture, performing at festivals like Fluff Fest (Czech Republic) or by organising self managed tours with the help of the labels they collaborate with or independent collectives.
