    The Acid - "Animal"

    The Acid have chosen to go down the "mysterious" promotional route. In the past that might have been immediately intriguing, but nowadays it's so common as to almost have become a little annoying. Like, fine you can get the PR company to withhold all information about you, but that's not going to make you stand out any more than if you said exactly who you were, where you were from, and what you're favorite food was. Anyway, in The Acid's case at least, any annoyance at the cliched mystery card will be immediately dispelled by pressing play on "Animal." It's a beautiful, bewitching song, which is backed up by another three impressive tracks on the band's debut EP. - Constant Gardner
