Glass Animals are an elusive band. Little information is around to be found about the group, other than a collection of select releases and an intriguing video for latest single ‘Cocoa Hooves’.
Apart from that, there’s no mention of a hometown on their Facebook page, hardly any photographs to be found and no back story. They keep themselves to themselves, only emerging from the undergrowth to unveil their specially honed brand of eclectic synth-pop. There’s a tad of dubstep to be found (only a tad, mind), and the rest is pretty darn soulful, with sultry vocals oozing from the cracks in their electronic whirrings.
Speaking to the band, we finally get a few more details on their enigmatic existence – they’re probably from Oxford. They also like Radiohead, Burial, and slugs. So without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to Glass Animals.
