Meta Animal - EP
Garage-rock power duo The Pack A.D.’s 2014 full-length Do Not Engage was unflinching in its approach, suggesting a band seemingly getting tighter with each subsequent release. Now singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have offered up a new follow-up EP, Meta Animal. The rocking lead single “Animal” was actually included on that aforementioned earlier LP, but the other three cuts are previously unreleased; “Motorvate” packs even more fuzz-encrusted guitar licks, “Back in a Hole” is how these two handle a ballad (not lightly), and “Nightcrawler” is a murky cover of an Oh Sees’ song, which finds Miller lending her vocals to the track in addition to Black’s.
The creepy music video for “Animal” made its’ debut this week on Inked Mag. Let’s hope for some live dates soon.
