about

Mammals is a trio from Chicago that play garagey power pop delivered with heart and soul. We've released two 45s thus far and "Look Around You" is our third. We adore the energy, urgency, and honesty of power pop and proto-punk of the '70s, especially those songs that embrace early rock 'n' roll and garage rock roots.

The melody and harmony of a song are important to us, as are its delivery and momentum. We're fans of 45s and dig the idea of giving the world small, digestible chunks of music. We listen to a huge variety of artists across many genres and we know you do, too, so we prefer to keep our releases short and sweet.

We really hope you enjoy our new record! THANK YOU for listening!

RIYL: The Nerves, The Jam, Ramones, Buddy Holly, Reigning Sound, The Plimsouls, The Kinks, Buzzcocks, Royal Headache.

Track Name: Look Around You
Green leaves, tall trees
Soft sunlight on your hair
Your mind feels fine
We're drifting through the air
Below, the rows of wheat so slowly sway

Just turn the other way
And look around you, just look around you
There's nothing left to say
Let it surround you, surround you

Cool river, you shiver
I pull you close to me
I'm breathless, you're restless
There's so much more to see
Dive deeper, we're freer than we were yesterday

Just turn the other way
And look around you, just look around you
There's nothing left to say
Let it surround you, surround you

Green leaves, tall trees
Soft sunlight on your hair
Track Name: In The Darkness
Long black shadows crawl
And they twist around you slowly
'Til you feel nothing at all
You, you cannot hide
When the haunting voice that frightens you
Is coming from inside

In the darkness of the night
Who'll be there to hold you tight
In the darkest hour of all
Who will hear you when you call

Lie in bed awake
How long can you keep on fooling yourself
When's it gonna break
Though you try to run
There's no place you can escape to
After all the things you've done

In the darkness of the night
Who'll be there to hold you tight
In the darkest hour of all
Who will hear you when you call
Track Name: Expanding Heart
Moving at this pace
I know I'll never win the race
I watch as they go by
Then close my eyes and I just fly away

Everything you hoped for now is gone
And it becomes harder to move on
When you think it might just break apart
Expanding heart

The walls keep falling down
They crash and crumble to the ground
They're not the enemy
In fact they might be just who you need

Did you think that you'd be left behind
It is just the fear that's in your mind
When you think it might just break apart
Expanding heart
Expanding heart
Expanding heart

You can't help feel a little strain
When your heart's going through all of these growing pains

You don't have to carry all that weight
Let it go right now, it's not too late
When you you think it might just break apart
Expanding heart
Expanding heart
Expanding heart
