The Mild Animals

What's up, mildlings! We're The Mild Animals, a band heralding from the beautiful city of College Park, MD. We like to play around with vibes, mixing indie rock with punk, funk, and other genres to make a slightly unpleasant yet still enjoyable conglomerate of alternative music. Hope ya like it!


Your friendly neighborhood alt-rock girl band!

Described by the Washington Post as "throwback indie rock," Makeup Girl is a music lover's dream come true. From their humble beginnings as a rock duo started by singer Brody Steck and drummer Caleb Schiebel, the band has expanded and matured into something much greater.

Joined by multi-instrumentalist Johnny Leander, and bassist Avery Steck, the band is now at full power.

Drawing from the likes of Stevie Wonder, the Strokes, Funkadelic, and the Arctic Monkeys, Makeup Girl's sound can be described as an explosive combination of pop rock and other genres including jazz, R&B, latin, and funk. Drummer Caleb Schiebel tirelessly pushes his set to the height of its capabilities, pumping out tight rhythms that allow guitar lines and melodies to run wild. Audiences should expect an engaging live show, ranging from energizing rock songs to dreamy jazz inspired numbers. Makeup Girl songs are filled with surprises as the band flows from groove to groove, seamlessly switching tempo and time signatures as the songs progress.

The band is currently preparing to release their next EP “In Time” - a genre smashing collection of songs designed to take listeners on a journey through musical realms. An EP unlike any MG EPs to come before, “In Time” shows off the band’s new lineup and further expands on their songwriting capabilities. Listeners should expect a wide range of styles and mood changes throughout songs as this EP unfolds. Look out for “In Time” coming later this December.
