Glass Animals - "Youth"
When I was first introduced to Glass Animals a couple of years back (by means of the always incredible "Gooey") I was pretty taken aback, partially because I couldn't believe I hadn't heard of them before, but more so because I had never really heard anything like it. Ever since I have tried thinking of a word to describe their sound and after hearing their latest single, "Youth", the best adjective I can come up with is, well, gooey. There's something about their sound that simultaneously sticks and flows, enveloping you in a thick haze of traditional alternative sounds and island (almost tribal)-influenced themes. It has reaffirmed why Glass Animals' sophomore album is one of my most anticipated of the year.
"Youth" is taken from Glass Animals upcoming sophomore album, How to be a Human Being, due out August 26
