Animal Prince is an Oakland-based tropical symph-pop duo. A husband and wife team, Fae Nageon de Lestang and Grant McLeod have approached Animal Prince as a vehicle to explore jazz, disco, and electronic music just as much as their intrigue for dance, fashion, and the natural world. Their electro-acoustic sound melds classical violin, power-pop vocals, and vibrant synths over jazz drums and percussion.
The band developed through music and art festival residencies at Lightning in a Bottle, High Sierra, and Okeechobee. In this spirit, the Animal Prince live show is an ultra sensory experience featuring lush violin/vocal loops, hybrid drum sets, vibrant set design, bold fashion, and dance choreography. Their carefully crafted yet playful sound weaves a journey through fantastical worlds, exploring unique environments around us and in our imagination.
