Nocturnal Animals aren’t a goth rock band or a horror punk outfit, but the closing track on their latest release has a spooky sound and is decidedly horror influenced. With that, I decided to share this track as part of our 31 Days of Halloween.
The band’s sound is upbeat and poppy, in the vein of popular acts like Arctic Monkeys, Panic! at the Disco, and Fall Out Boy. In this track, the lyrics are a bit darker than on most of the others on Writing On The Walls. There’s a definite influence from horror film and horror punk in both the lyrics and sound of this track, which really sucked me in as a horror fan.
I expect you’ll love it if you enjoy upbeat, punk influenced rock music, so give it a quick spin this Halloween and check out the band’s website for more!
