Certain Animals

Welcome to a Certain Animals' dirty psychedelic rock universe. Down The Rabbit Hole!

Certain Animals serves you dirty rock with a psychedelic edge, filled with harmony and melodic twists.
This Rotterdam based trio hit the scene just a year ago, but has already stolen the hearts of many. After opening for Therapy?, Golden Earring, Navarone, Barry Hay’s Flying V Formation, Jan Akkerman’s Brainbox and Birth of Joy in venues like Paard van Troje, Effenaar, Hedon and Rotown, the three piece toured with traveling festival Popronde and played over thirty gigs in just three months, bringing their idiom of guitar, bass, drums and vocal harmonies to unsuspecting crowds.
Last September, the 7” vinyl single ‘Image’ was released in a sold out V11 Rotterdam. The single and accompanying video were immediately picked up by (national) media such as 3FM, AD, Metronieuws, 3voor12, Lust For Life, Never Mind The Hype, LiveGuide and The Daily Indie. The song also was nominated for ‘Best track of 2017’ at the Rotterdam Music Awards.
With lots of labour and even more love, old harbour prostitution grounds were transformed into a full-fledged studio. There these hairy men worked diligently to record their brand new EP, ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’, which will be released on 12″ vinyl at Zwarte Cross 2018, in Rotown Rotterdam and the Sugarfactory, Amsterdam. Meanwhile, this trio is looking forward to a bustling festival season including performances at Zwarte Cross, Mañana Mañana, Oerol, Bevrijdingsfestival Zuid-Holland and Big Rivers, playing the roof off of every stage they play. Leaving their audience in ecstasy, Certain Animals is reviving rock from the roots up.
