Obscure Animals

Rock band from Austin, Texas

Our debut album, Picking Berries On The Way To The Apocalypse, is now available worldwide on all major streaming services and available for purchase on Bandcamp.

Formed in late 2021, Obscure Animals is JR Kaufman on vocals and guitar, Patrick Shea on bass, and David Menendez on guitar. Our sound can be described as a combination of alternative rock, indie rock, and midwest emo with influences from bands like The Get Up Kids, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Silversun Pickups. You can find us on the ATX ROCK Spotify playlist along with some of Austin's best up and coming rock bands. We've also been featured on KROX 101X Homegrown and Deep Dallas Radio.
