With influences ranging from Dr. Dog to The Kinks, Led Zeppelin, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, the sonic landscape of Filthy Animals' Tops Is Tops EP (2016) is deeply rooted in the rock & roll tradition. Local music critics Rift Magazine describe the group as “reminiscent of 60's pop/rock”, “The Beatles plus some soul” and “infectiously positive”. Although the EP is about music, it's also about visual art as the band creates all its own artwork for albums, posters, buttons, and t-shirts.
