Post Animal’s Jake Hirshland gives Kyle Meredith a call to discuss Forward Motion Godyssey. The two dig into the art and importance of mystery, breaking sonic boundaries, allowing themselves to take on multiple genres, and writing with a shared mind. The record was recorded in Big Sky, Montana, and while Hirschland says there was mystical behavior in the wildlife, the ghosts that haunted 2018’s When I Think of You in a Castle didn’t follow them. Hirshland also speaks about how house music inspired the lead single “Safe Or Not” and previews their upcoming tour with Cage the Elephant.
