The Pinker Tones, a Barcelona musical duo known for their electronic sounds, released a new album in early June 2008. Wild Animals, the band’s third album in the United States, was released right before the beginning of their Vans Warped Tour with more than 40 venues across the United States. The two previous albums released in the United States are The Million Colour Revolution and 2007 remix album More Colours! Scroll down to watch a music video and listen to a song from the new album.
“Our last album, The Million Colour Revolution, was about utopia, a projection for how we wanted the world to be,” said Mister Furia. “Wild Animals is about reality, our interpretation of the actual world we live in. Songs like The Whistling Song, 24 and On Se Promenait are some of our happiest and most nostalgic yet.”
Wild Animals features special vocal guests including reggae soul performer Jimmy Lindsay from Cymande on The Whistling Song, and Amparo from Spanish band Amparanoia on Electrotumbao. The first single was the track Happy Everywhere.
