“As a human being it’s really important to feel and express emotions whether happy or sad,” says Hiro Amamiya, the Teleman drummer whose solo guise is Hiro Ama. “I sometimes struggle to and so these are a collection of songs that explore different emotions. I want people to feel something through my music so I called this EP Animal Emotions.”

Amamiya follows up on swiftly on 2020’s field recording-heavy EP Uncertainty with a record made in his bedroom and during a time of introspection to create something even more personal. “On Uncertainty I was using sounds from everywhere and whatever sounded good,” he says. “But for Animal Emotions I stuck with fewer instruments so the EP feels much more united. I also used more acoustic instruments as I sometimes feel electronic music in general lacks some organic and human elements so I tried to make this EP as organic as possible”

However, buried beneath the warm electronics, gently pulsing grooves, infectious melodies and immersive soundscapes - that veer from disco strut to IDM via jazz-laced ambient - you’ll still find some field recordings. “You might not hear them as obviously as on my previous EP but field recordings are there,” he says. “I like them because it's very spontaneous and gives some human feel. It also adds some air to a recording which I quite like.”
