Dallas-based indie pop band Air Review may have started out writing and practicing out of a converted garage, but despite those relatively humble beginnings, its music is far from unpolished. With the release of its second full-length record, Low Wishes, the band's songcraft has only grown more refined and immersive. In songs like "Young" and "America's Son," Air Review builds to satisfying peaks all while documenting shattered dreams, disillusioned hearts, and the trials of everyday life.

And in the album's closer, "Animal," vocalist Douglas Hale’s introspective words are offset by layer upon layer of sparkling synthesizers, ghostly guitar lines, and otherworldly vocal melodies. But live, Air Review is able to infuse its songs with a sense of moody immediacy. In this new live-in-the-studio video for "Animal," the band performs against a simple, but evocatively textured light show. It's a perfect introduction to Air Review's lovely music.
