Today, the Montreal trio Plants and Animals unveils “Sacrifice” a brand new, thumping contrasting song, from their upcoming album to be released in 2020. “This is a song about what people are willing to do for feelings of acceptance and quick tastes of happiness,” explains the band. “The goal was to have two contrasting sections pushed up against each other with abrupt transitions between them. First there’s this rhythmic cycle that’s hypnotic and intense, with a vocal line floating through it all dreamy and unanchored. Then, pow, the clouds part and there’s a chorus that’s straight up easy. It’s the clarity of hindsight. Relishing it. And maybe a bit cocky because then we go back to the crazy again. We love playing with tension and release. It comes with its own rush.”


Aujourd’hui, le trio montréalais Plants and Animals dévoile "Sacrifice", une percutante nouvelle chanson tirée de son prochain album à paraître en 2020. « Voici une chanson à propos de ce que les gens sont prêts à faire pour se sentir acceptés et pour goûter brièvement au bonheur », explique le groupe. « Le concept était d’avoir deux sections contrastantes l’une avec l’autre, avec des transitions abruptes entre elles. D’abord, il y a ce cycle rythmique à la fois hypnotisant et intense, avec une piste vocale qui flotte à travers le tout de façon onirique et planante. Puis pow! les nuages se dissipent et il y a un refrain simple et direct. C’est la clarté qui vient avec le recul. Qu’on savoure. Avec peut-être un peu d’arrogance, parce qu’ensuite on retourne vers la folie de nouveau. Nous adorons jouer avec la tension et la libération. Cela est accompagné de sa propre poussée d’adrénaline. »
