Animal Collective-Sung Tongs

Animal Collective’s Avey Tare and Panda Bear will perform their breakthrough 2004 record Sung Tongs at the Summer Nostos Festival 2018.

 

The bold psychedelic pop band from Baltimore, which is experimenting with rock sounds, ambient drone, and experimental pop has been praised by fans and critics for preserving, during live performances, the intimate and fragile elements of their music, without losing its character.

 

The band’s members are Avey Tare (David Portner), Panda Bear (Noah Lennox), Deakin (Josh Dibb), and Geologist (Brian Weitz). Influenced by classic 20th century music and horror movies soundtracks, they started recording music while they were still students. They formed Animal Collective officially in 2003 and ever since they became one of the most iconic bands of the ‘00s.

 

They are often compared to the Beach Boys, an American rock band of the 60s. As a response, Animal Collective wrote the song “College”, an iconic anti – beach boys track which they included to the Sung Tongs record.

Avey Tare and Panda Bear are coming to Athens for a live performance which is expected to be one of the best concerts of this summer in Greece.
