Berkeley alt-pop natives Flour Flour (Brian Baughn and Philip Wright) took the idea of exploring how animals see the world to create their latest single, “Become Animal.” It all started with a look at Baughn’s cat:
Stirred to explore how animals see the world, Baughn began to imagine a parallel between the process of growing up and the sci-fi concept of transforming into an animal: when you embrace your own voice as a teenager, you aren’t really becoming a vicious animal – you’re beginning to trust your instincts.
“Become Animal” is a light, folk-ish song that makes you want to hop in a car to go camping all weekend. With the smooth vocals and Philip Wright’s upbeat synths, you just might add this to your next feel-good playlist, at least. Maybe one day, you too will be inspired by your pet.
