It’s been nearly two years since Glass Animals released their debut album, and what a debut it was! ‘Zaba’ is a cracking listen, with its booming basslines, luscious vocals and all that melodically falls in between, this is one great album and resides permanently in my car as i love driving to it!
This summer the Oxford quartet are to return with a new album which, greatly influenced by the people they met on their tours and travels, is aptly titled,’How To Be A Human Being.’
Inspired by the bands festival trekking, global travel and extensive touring adventures, frontman and producer Dave Bayley has described how, “things have changed a lot” for the band. “Instead of sitting in the studio, we’ve been in a different city every night; making friends, hearing crazy stories, getting in crazy trouble,” he adds. “All of it made me want to think about people, and write something rawer and more human.”
Ahead of their album Glass Animals have shared the cosmic, worldy-sounding song, ‘Life Itself,’ and there’s a little bit of everything packed into this track. Like a musical suitcase it has collected snippets of sound from various destinations and is greatly inspired by the people they met on the road, it’s a great taster for what’s to come. Listen above.
