Zoo Animal, a local indie rock band and "Live From Studio 5!" guest, is one of the many underappreciated gems on the Twin Cities music scene. In the group’s second, self-titled album, Holly Newsom took listeners on a dark, yet mysteriously enticing journey through rageful relationships to the ever-thorny realm of religion. Live, Newsom’s feisty guitar skills and muffled vocals build into a tension filled explosion of emotion onstage. This video shows a softer side of Newsom, and the stripped-down direction Zoo Animal seems to be moving in. It was filmed by North Shore Sessions in St. Paul last week. You can also check out Zoo Animal's "Live From Studio 5!" performance on our YouTube channel.
