about

Animalia is a solo artist that uses layered vocals, acoustic guitar, beats and electronica to create her music, offering an energetic and dark performance. She has been likened to Sinead O’Connor and Dolores O'Riordan for her strong vocals.

Residing in Toronto, Canada, this Tasmanian musician started her solo career as Animalia in January, 2012, and has since released two independent EP’s: “To the Waking, the Shaking and the Volatile” and “A Wave to Wash the World Away”.

The song “Unity” (off the first EP) appeared in the movie “Antiviral” by Brandon Cronenberg, which premiered at Cannes Film Festival 2012.

“A Wave to Wash the World Away” has been played on a range of Canadian College and Community radio stations and Australia’s Triple J Unearthed has the track “Swimming” on rotation.

June, 2013, saw Animalia’s first festival appearance at Toronto’s North by North East.

Animalia will be back in the studio later this year to record her first full-length album, which will be followed by a European tour.

Track Name: The Trees
Honey I know - you want me inside
But I can't move - my legs are tied

I'm swaying in the breeze

Scared now he calls - he calls my name
And now it's dark - it's starting to rain

I'm swaying in the breeze

Funny to know - as time passes me by
Counting the years like I was counting the days
I fell into the trees

People have come - people have gone
And now he mourns - and then he moves on

I'm swaying in the breeze
all my limbs are full of leaves

Funny to know - as time passes me by
Counting the years - like I was counting the days
I fell into the trees
Track Name: Worth It
Strip all my feelings as I walk into the storm
I get the sense that I'm drowning here
One more step and I'm going under for sure
I need to check that I'm breathing

Can I ask is it worth it?
To let the storm rage on.
Can you say it was worth it?
I let it all fall away

All these walls crumble to the floor
I need to get myself out here
Let me - let me jump off
Let this wind take me

Can I ask is it worth it?
To let the storm rage on
Can you say it was worth it?
I let it all fall away

As you float away
I didn't mean to complicate
Set your sail
Track Name: Swimming
We find ourselves here
We find ourselves under water
Slipping under the waves

Time to make my great escape
Got excited by waves
That were coming to drown us all

I've been dreaming for days
Where three worlds collided
And the rain comes down with crash
Obliterate all sentiment

It's all over once again
Didn't even try to hold my breath
We go swimming with the fish again

Give myself into the green
Only to find that I'm still breathing
Underneath my skin is changing
Separating the oxygen

It's all over once again
Didn't even try to hold my breath
We go sinking down
It's all over once again
Didn't even try to hold my breath
We go swimming with the fish again

We go swimming down.
Track Name: Lovely
A blue sky snow storm came rolling in
I woke up with knives out playing in my head

And I imagined the waves

Waves high like mountains to wash the world away
It's a clear sky now floating building debris

Oh, didn't the birds look lovely
flying away

The birds were singing a perfect song
"they'll be crawling into the ocean when the waves have come and gone"

And I imagined the waves

Oh, didn't the birds look lovely
And now, we sail away with city
And oh, didn't the birds look lovely
Flying away.
