It's a disco dancer with a secret life...

ANIMA! match disco abandon to bittersweet songwriting.

A project that unites two musicians from California and Cape Town, Arielle Vakni and Vicente Espi struck gold first time out, with debut single 'Breathe' becoming a viral hit.

Reminiscent of Little Dragon or Sylvan Esso, their vocal enchantment is linked to gorgeous electronics and a pulsating, club-ready beat.

With a new album incoming - order it HERE - the band have shared their divine new single 'Aorta'.

A song split into segments, the vocal spins a tale of longing, something picked up on in the ambitious video.

A stop motion animation by UK artist Trevor Hardy at FoolHardy Films, the clip is a remarkable achievement, offering an insight into the inner life of an office worker.

Oddly moving and completely contagious, it's a brilliant video for a group who have many different layers to their music.
