"Animal Nature" is the new EP from upstate New York via California songwriter (Erica) Quitzow, coming out November 25th on Young Love Records. It consists of five songs created while touring in support of her previous full-length release, "Art College." The songs were inspired and influenced by the live performances and is thus an extension of the project. The songs were brought home as skeletons of samples and drum loops, each originally named after the state in which it was created. Erica added the Quitzow touch, creating a collection of pop tunes and dreamy sounds capes; its dancey digital elements warmed up with an organic analog feel provided by cello, violin, acoustic guitar, live percussion and Moog.

"Art College" spent eight weeks on the CMJ charts and gained critical acclaim from national publications such as Spin Magazine, which described it as "cello and Moog art whimsy with a bubbly groove and defiant summer strut." The touring band, which consists of drums, bass, cello, Moog, Korg, and guitar, is a rotating cast of 4 to 5 members and continues to tour "Art College." Songs from "Animal Nature" will show up in sets very soon! These new tunes will make their premieres during Quitzow''s European tour in November and December.

"Animal Nature" touches on themes of love, the music industry, spiritual ideology, and escapism. The uncertainty of the music industry and a challenge to "get it started" to the opportunities teasing the project are addressed in the first song, "What time is it," as well as a more obvious plea to a love interest. Mortality, escapism, and addiction are explored in "Float" and "New York Haunting," while "In the land of science" is an anthem for a Darwinian, materially based belief system. The title track reminds us to notice our animal emotions; fear, comfort, sexuality, and power, amidst the technology and heady culture we live in.

Quitzow hopes you enjoy these new songs and assures you the quirkiness herein is not an affectation, but a genuine extension of her personality. If you have your doubts, consider how relatively new an art form pop music is and thus how natural it seems to attempt to cross into uncharted territory. While a love for nostalgia is appreciated and accepted as occurring spontaneously, Quitzow has no interest in intentionally recreating a sound for its own sake.
