Animal Eyes plays next week at Down East

Portland indy band Animal Eyes plays at the Down East Saloon on Aug. 19 and 20. A group of five friends who grew up in Alaska, including Homer, Animal Eyes has become an up-and-coming band in the Portland music scene. 

They tour Alaska Aug. 13-26 to promote their new single, “Mushroom Hunter,” a track from their next album, “Where We Go,” due for release in spring of 2016. 

Band member Colin McArthur said the single “shows the band going in a more psychedelic direction, but their tendencies towards off-kilter yet danceable grooves, somewhat twisted pop song structures, and layers of vocal melodies, reminiscent of The Dirty Projectors or Animal Collective, are still present and in full display.”
