Biography

Brooklyn NY, United States (2011 – present)

Wildlife Control is an American indie rock band from Brooklyn, NY and San Francisco, CA formed in 2011 by brothers Neil Shah (lead vocals, guitar, piano) and Sumul Shah (vocals, drums, guitar). Touring members include Moppa Elliott (bass) and Kevin Thaxton (bass).

Wildlife Control released their debut single Analog or Digital in December 2011 with an interactive video using HTML5, JavaScript, and the SoundCloud API. In February 2012, they released the official music video for Analog or Digital on YouTube. It went viral, officially trending during the first weekend of its release. The widespread reach of the videos resulted in Analog or Digital and the band’s subsequently released EP, Spin to hit No. 1 on Amazon MP3’s “Hot New Releases” sales chart in the Alternative Pop category.

In April 2012, Wildlife Control held a four-week residency at Arlene’s Grocery in New York City while touring through several major cities including Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco.

Wildlife Control released their self-titled debut album on July 31, 2012. The album received favorable reviews from several major media outlets, with Wired declaring it “A great debut album from an indie band who really seem to be creating their own musical pulse.” Two songs from the album hit the Hype Machine “Popular” chart, with People Change reaching No. 1 and Spin reaching No. 4. The band held album premiere shows at Mercury Lounge in New York City and Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco.
