Last night, Glass Animals performed their 2014 track ‘Gooey’ on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Making their second US televised appearance (catch up Jools, nobody’s put them on in the UK yet), the Oxford group (or as Dave calls them, “THE BOYS FROM OXFORD”) ran through a highlight from the ‘Zaba’ debut, out now on Wolf Tone.
David Letterman had a struggle pronouncing the album title (“Zaaaaaaarrrbah?”), but the rest of the appearance was way more seamless, Dave Bayley and co. bringing their acid-trip-in-the-jungle aesthetic to the studio by decorating it with palm trees.
Peanut butter vibes are taking over - watch Glass Animals on Letterman below.
