Danimals (expect a possible name change in the near future) started out as a solo project by Sydney artist Jonti Danilewitz, but has now grown into a full five-piece electronic pop band.

Their debut LP Twirligig, consisting of Danilewitz’s unreleased previous solo material, was expected to be released on Speak N Spell sometime this year, however the band no longer appears to be on the label’s roster. It has not been officially announced yet, but the Australian band has seemingly been signed to Peanut Butter Wolf’s Stones Throw Records. Danimals is definitely a band to look out for.
