about

In August of 2016, whilst most kids were frolicking through flowering meadows, or wild swimming in sun-kissed lakes, the PILOSA trio were holed up in a stuffy room in Neepsend, Sheffield recording this very album. Crafted over the following four months, this is the fruit of an ambitious DIY project which saw plenty of highs, lows, and Googling. We're rather proud of what we've achieved, and we hope you like it

-------REVIEWS-------

VIBE SHEFFIELD - 4/5

MUSICOLOGY - 4/5

"Such Animals is a fun sounding album with bouncy rhythms that helps to raise the mood without relying on specific formulae and theory in order to get its point across. This is a piece of art that contains a soul, which is one of the best things about it." - NOW THEN MAGAZINE

"Synths, loops, drums, and vocals that joyfully skip from the blooming pop of College, the incessant hip hop of Madvillain, and a touch of The Hitcher." - SLOUCHER

"This is an album which excels in production, in song writing, and in technical performance." - REYT GOOD MUSIC

Track Name: SEMAPHORE
Waving flags at each other
Now and again
A desert in the rain
In my imagination

Intermittent communication
Details forgotten
Of words spoken
Better to forget

You won’t win every race
In which you take part
You won’t even finish
All that you start

Dreams you have today
I don't know them
So I'm guessing
I could make them happen

You won’t win every race
In which you take part
You won’t even finish
All that you start
Track Name: MELODRAMATICA
I know that you’re beaten
I know what you’re feeling
We’ve been feeling it for months now

What will we do when it grows a mind?
Bold, italic, and underlined
Don’t you see what you do to me
Shrink me down to size

I know that you’re beaten
Nothing prepares you for the colours retreating
I know what you’re feeling
I’ve seen love in hellish places
I’ve seen love in a million faces
Atom bombs in personal spaces

What will we do if it grows big?
Women and children will up sticks
Clown town brown bow-wow
The boat’s out more than we allow

Oh, melodramatica

What will we do if it grows a brain?
The methods of the inhumane
Don’t you see what you do to me
Shrink me down to size
What will we do if it's self-aware?
Mickey Mouse grew up a bear!
Don’t you see what you do to me
Shrink me down to size
Track Name: JUNK MILES
Monster on your back
Bones to be cracked
Money in the black
Name up on a plaque
We’ve been pointing at the sun
Blinding everyone
Waiting for the rapture
It's already begun

What came first
The chicken or the egg?
The service or the cheque?
The circus or the animals?
What came first
The damage or the wreck?
Finished or perfect?
Fear or respect?
What came first?
Calibrate your head
There’s something overhead
Rid me of the dread
What came first?

Speak to the undead
Dine with the undead
Fuck with the undead

Why’ve you been wasting all your time on
Junk miles, junk miles, junk miles
The piece of the puzzle is a square in a round hole
Why’ve you been wasting all your time on junk miles

You’ve been running those junk miles, bleeding on the textiles, blocking all the sundials, sitting in the meat aisles, biding your time while, we all become fertile, choking on today’s bile, nobody is versatile, and nobody is worthwhile
Track Name: BALLOON BOY
Come on dance media, dance
Falcons fly but not today
Leave my wife to the tether
I tell you that thing just flew away

Close the airspace now
Save my boy somehow
There’s an issue of a million volts
I can’t explain it now

Send the choppers to the skies
Followed by two million eyes

It’s not quite Roswell
More tinfoil, string, duct tape
A world holds its breath
Hoping he’ll stay safe

Two million US Dollars
Two million eyes will follow
Mobilise the Sheriff’s office
And gather up the local police

It’s not quite Roswell
More tinfoil, string, duct tape
A world holds its breath
Hoping he’ll stay safe

He is my balloon boy
Colorado needs a new toy
Track Name: SILHOUETTE DOGS
Clap you hands for the surreal
Everything peaced out and piecemeal
Mistake beauty for horror
Van Gogh paint me in a corner
Befriend those with solutions
Dip your feet in the ocean
Put your hands up to the lights
Silhouette dogs in silhouette nights

Drip feed, intravenous
Keep it in between us
Do you want to continue?
No thank you

Clap your hands for the surreal
Everyone scared of a square meal
Mistake horror for beauty
The fear of you goes right through me
Keep your cards close to your chest
And keep your head close to the rest
I never said you were hired
I never said you were fired

Nature or nurture,
Choose your own adventure
Blow out all the lanterns
We’ve been trying to form patterns

A beating heart to keep in time
A ladder ribcage you can climb
Cut off the air supply
Fading apple of my eye
Track Name: FREEZING POINT
200,000 to 100
We live in a cupboard under the stairs
From 100 to 24
Space food and colourful buttons

What if i want to turn back?
What if I miss my parents?
Darkness breeds all patterns
Light me up like a Chinese lantern

Micro-sleep, porthole or portal
“Good morning” you’ve already said it to me
My lungs batter my ribcage
Is there a doctor on board, I’m bored

What if it all just turns black?
Jobsworth Auto-pilot
This isn't what I imagined
Call me chicken, call me old-fashioned

Total Recall, Apollo 13,
Alien, Aliens, Alien 3,
Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind
In 2001 someone died
Armageddon, Gravity, Interstellar, E.T.
Men in Black, Mars Attack, Sunshine, Wall-E
Independance Day The Earth Stood Still,
Roll me down the Hollywood hills

Coming live straight to TV
We’re working on the two week feed delay
Still image, empty fields of clay
Round-the-clock-multi-angle-pay-per-view

Citizen Kane - IN SPACE!
Schindler's List - IN SPACE!
Cinema Paradiso - IN SPACE!
The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas - IN SPACE!
La vita è bella- IN SPACE!
Hotel Rwanda - IN SPACE!
Kramer vs Kramer - IN SPACE!
Wickerman, the remake - IN SPACE!
Track Name: SAVAGE BENEFACTOR
A holiday under a burning sun
Like the one you had before
Dollars paid to have some fun
But you're always after more

A savage benefactor
With a perfect smile
A savage benefactor
Been making plans for a while

We can make that happen sir
If you can afford to pay the price
As large as you would like to have sir
A huge trophy would be nice

A savage benefactor
With a perfect smile
A savage benefactor
Been making plans for a while

Tell me the words to use
To make this go away
It seems I've got so much to lose
And not too much to say
Track Name: LAMENT
She had a heart of gold
And their hearts they bled
And the butcher's knife
Was for slicing bread

An ocean of tears
From all her friends
And the bullets in her drawer
Were for self defense

She hurt no one
Such a nice kid
But her foul mouth was
Hereditary

She prayed to God
Even with no sin
And the pile of bank notes
Were a lottery win

On her coffin lid
There lays a wreath
And her black-eyed neighbour
Is lying through his teeth
Track Name: INTERPOLATE ME
Who said you'd be fine? It's what I heard
It's 1929 in your head

In time we won't feel that way
Track Name: GETTING IT WRONG
Some calls you get right and some calls you get wrong
It's more about the timing and less what you have done

I know it's late in the day now but if not now then tell me when?
Perhaps I'm just blind to the setting sun or knowing when it's too late to start again

You might have been the hero in another story
Now you're trapped as a villian, though a reluctant one surely

Some calls you get right and some calls you get wrong
It's more about the timing and less what you have done
