Certain Animals serves you dirty rock with a psychedelic edge, full of harmony and melodic twists.


The Rotterdam based trio hit the scene just a year ago, but has already stolen the hearts of many. After opening for Therapy?, Randy Hansen, Golden Earring, Brainbox, The Grand East and Navarone 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 studio. There the hairy men reside and diligently work on their new EP, which will see the light of day in early 2018. Meanwhile, the experienced musicians, who in the past also played at Lowlands, 3FM, Eurosonic Noorderslag and DWDD with their former bands PAUW and The Fabulous WannaBeatles, continue to blow the roof of every stage they get to play. Leaving their audience in ecstasy, Certain Animals is reviving rock from the roots up.
