Post Animal share new single “Fitness”, announce North American tour: Stream

on January 07, 2020, 5:21pm

With Post Animal’s sophomore LP Forward Motion Godyssey due out next month, today the band has shared its newest single, “Fitness”, along with a string of US headlining tour dates.

Similar to November’s “Schedule”, this track showcases the group’s growth as a five-piece sans Stranger Things actor Joe Keery. “Fitness” unfurls like a slow burner that veers between psych-synth moods and string-laden soft rock, with the last third bursting open before settling back down into an easy grooving outro.

In a recent interview with Billboard, singer Jake Hirshland spoke about the song’s unpredictability, explaining, “I think we definitely wanted to send a curveball towards listeners with “Fitness””. He continued, “With that being said, I think that the whole album is fairly eclectic and there wouldn’t have been a lot of choices we could have made that wouldn’t have been surprising. There’s a lot of different turns on the record, and I think ‘Fitness’ is just one of the many little genre pockets that we enter into.”
