Dance is a loose term, but it’s also an inevitable directive. Whether on stage or on record, Boston electronic-pop quartet, Bearstronaut, has made a name in their hometown for sparking instant dance parties. Despite their rather frigid-weather Northeast origins, Bearstronaut has been dubbed "tank-top pop" due to their warm, tropical synth-pop sound.
"Class of 2012: Boston's 12 Best New Bands…'Can't Dance With It' is a bubbling synth number that's destined for alt-rock radio, while 'Into the Sun' is confident modern pop shuffle with an edge."
- The Boston Phoenix
"Local post-dance rock outfit Animal Talk hit SXSW this spring to show the world what we already know they've got — namely, a dexterous grasp on the balance between electronics and rock that so many electro-rock bands of the day can't quite strike."

"Please don't go see Animal Talk if you're not going to dance. Assertive percussion and slightly rough vocals round out pop-y synths and indie rock guitars, all of which come together for a high-energy live show that defies the audience a chance to stand still, let alone sit down."
"Think Young the Giant meets Lenny Kravitz, and there you have the distinct sound that is Animal Talk. The EP's opener, 'Into The Sun,' is a track that features fast-paced drum beats along with instrumental hooks that will leave anyone dancing for days…A standout track, 'Can't Dance With It,' features smooth guitar riffs along with a touch of electronic beats…[Animal Talk] leaves listeners wanting more."

"2012 Hot List – Hot Indie Rock. Now that Boston is churning out some high-gloss pop acts, it's high time that our indie-rock bands add a slick coat of polish to their sound. Rising post-dance-rock quartet Animal Talk fit the bill. Though really, they can fit any bill, having shared the stage with Wolf Gang and Young the Giant and gigged both way north (Toronto's NXNE) and way south (Austin's SXSW)…Animal Talk, we see roaring mainstream success in your future."
- Stuff Magazine
"Animal Talk's 'Into The Sun' takes off from the ground with a sizzle and cuts a dynamic trail through your local sky, shooting off sparks and changing colors and crackling with energy…'Into The Sun' provides a different sort of visceral trip for the ear, and it is an exciting and rewarding one."
- Boston Band Crush
"Animal Talk's energetic, danceable sound and their irresistibly cool vibe will have you wishing you could have them at your next house party. They're the kind of band you want to listen to, but also want to hang out with."
"Boston's Animal Talk are one of the more hyped band of the fest, and with good reason. Blending indie rock with dance elements, they evoke memories of that transition period between '89 and '93…The result? Dance anthems for the indie kids, who swayed and moved along throughout the set. Charismatic and confident, Animal Talk are worthy of their hype."

"Animals don't really talk, but then again they don't form post-dance rock groups with the world at their feet. Invigorating Boston based electro-pop."
