Southern California based indie-alternative rock band, Those Animals, deliver sweet, melancholy melodies that are sure to dig into your ear. Akin to the subtle surf rock vibes of Real Estate, the jangly guitar tones of Mac DeMarco and the psychedelic power of Tame Impala, Mark Cross started the project in 2020 as a means to express his unique form of songwriting. The singer/songwriter turned producer says he wants “to write catchy hooks that make a listener keep a song on repeat and evoke emotion”. Though he pulls themes from pop music, he strays from a formulaic approach to better serve the natural flow of his ideas. Cross has written popular songs that have aired on 95.5, KLOS, and has toured with bands that have opened for Barns Courtney and HUNNY.

I HEARD, YOU HEARD and Can We Talk? co-written and produced by Christian Lum of Private Island.

Tattoo of the Sunshine and Step on the Line co-written and produced by Austin Linkous of Struck Sure and Lancer Roscoe.

Live band members, past and present: William Farquharson (Guitar), Charlie Alpert (guitar), Torrance Klein (bass), Austin Linkous (production), Ashley Rose Lilly (Keyboard), Austin Herzig (drums) and Mark Cross (guitar/vocals/Songwriter).
