The Animal You Are is a perfect celebration of alternative rock, with hints of progressive and post-metal fused with eerie vocal melodies. The album is a dynamic, soulful and groove laden ride into the band's unique take on modern prog rock and metal, echoing not only contemporary greats such as Karnivool and Gojira but also with a firm rooting back into the glory days of grunge and prog with a nod of the head to the likes of Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden and Smashing Pumpkins. Despite many of  these influences the album still retains a distinctly British feel thanks to their unconventional approach to recording which unlike many of their contemporaries, keeps it all live, all analogue and put down on vintage equipment.
