Last year Nick and Chase decided to take all they’d learned over the years and do right by music ⏤their true love, starting Half The Animal. In a short amount of time, HTA has accomplished more than most bands with record deals do over the course of multiple albums. Last fall HTA toured with Atlas Genius and with Smallpools and Great Good Fine OK last spring. This fall, they’ll be jumping on tour with Lovelytheband – who held the #1 spot at Alternative radio for seven weeks this year.
These new songs with Captain Cuts and Sam Martin will be the cornerstone of the 2018 launch of Half The Animal. They have radio smashes in the can, but will be rolling things out slowly and building organically throughout the year.
“Magic,” available today, is our first glimpse into HTA’s debut project Automatic America – an exploration of a generation stuck in limbo: nostalgic for the innocence of a pre-Internet childhood, wrestling with the technology-obsessed society of today and searching for intimacy, authenticity, and meaning in a digital simulacrum.
