Glass Animals are back, people.
The Oxford group have returned with ‘Life Itself’, the first taste of their new album, the follow-up to 2014’s ‘ZABA’.
The track debuted as a Hottest Record on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. Listen below.
Speaking to DIY about their new record, Dave Bayley tells us to expect an “emotional heaviness.” Explaining, he says: “I still feel very odd listening to these strangely personal songs. We’ve never done that before. It reaches strange places, emotionally. And it’s definitely harder sonically.”
Dave adds: “The drums are a lot louder - the guitars have this bluesy overdriven style. The last record was quite clean and tame and smooth. This is definitely more angular.”
