Quality indie rock is hard to find these days.  With electronic based pop music dominating the scene, indie rock has a harder climb to get to a height where it can be seen.  Animal Years seems to have made that climb with the driven, emotionally charged “Leah.”  From the Brooklyn-based quartet’s recently released debut album, Sun Will Rise, “Leah” is introspective and reserved one second, then erupts like a volcano the next.  Lead singer, Mike McFadden, dominates every inch of the track and provides enough fuel to send this track into the stratosphere.  Bordering on folk rock/Americana, “Leah” still has that good ol’ hometown feel making Animal Years that familiar friend you want to welcome into your playlist.  Enjoy.
