Animal is the first album of Danpyunsun and the Sailors, a four-member band, as well as the title of the album’s showcase, held at KT&G Sangsang Madang Concert hall in Hongdae. The musical performance of Danpyunsun and the Sailors is based on “sophisticated violence”. Their record is great, but they can shine even better on stage where they growl, roar and run around all the time. In the live show, their songs are backed by acoustic instruments mainly consist of woods and irons rather than using electronic sound effects. Every time they play, those instruments reach their record high sound potential and make a grand impression on the audience. The album was already picked as one of the best debuts of the 2010s, awarded the first prize for Best Rock Album at the 12th annual Korean Music Awards, which was held in February 2015, and they are now gaining recognition as authentic Korean Music.
