Proudly touting one of the year's strongest debut records, Oxford's Glass Animals are on course to be an unrivalled quartet of dominating figures in the immediate future. Their first LP, ZABA, is a gorgeous commingling of syrupy gloop-splattered synths, Yellow Fever funk guitar, alt-J-esque falsetto harmonies and rampant beats that sound like a jungle stampede.
They spin an addictive and hugely unique style of music, and though it's achingly familiar, there's never any anchoring point — a rare treat in today's sonic landscape. It's an ambitious set of tracks to transfer into live scenarios, but, even in their relatively early days, they've fine-tuned and sharpened an array of sandblasted efforts. Even if you're not familiar with the band, it's well worth taking a gamble and watching them live; as much as it's an impressive performance, it's an experience that'll melt the innards of your cranium.

Having only released two albums so far, Glass Animals certainly have to put some lesser-known songs into their setlist. But here's the thing: they truly don't have a bad song. Each track has a different sound and a different story to tell. The show started with the jumpy and rhythmic "Life Itself," but was immediately followed by the deliciously slow and smooth jams "Black Mambo" and "Hazey.
Of course, "Gooey," the lads' most famous hit, brought the house down and a solid encore finished off the show. I think I was most impressed with the performance aspect of the concert.

The strobe lights and the energy of the band really made the most of the NorVa's small space. And, oh yeah, a giant pineapple disco ball doesn't hurt. Been wanting to watch this band since their inception.
Finally got the perfect opportunity with the grand opening of the roxy, a new venue right in front of the brand new braves stadium! They started out strong with their latest single with their latest single "life itself". This showed how skillful they've become with their live act and how they've developed over time. One of the coolest set features was how in sync the lighting effects were with the act especially the light reflections that came from a huge pineapple disco ball that hung above the stage.
Highlight of the show was undoubtedly their ability to break off into solos and improve each song. Usually when I think of glass animals I think calm and soothing sounds but this show was the opposite. Just imagine their songs on steroids. Amazing show to say the least and I can not wait to watch they live again! If you're reading this, you're likely already a fan of their music. Well after seeing them live, I'm a bigger fan. The lead singer was so enthusiastic and looked like he was having a blast and when the crowd showed the band love, he was humble and endearing and played even harder.
His energy was infectious and the whole room just seemed really stoked to be there as was I. They are really fun and if I had any complaint, it was that they didn't play long enough. I like those bands too but what a breath of fresh air. And real drums. Every one of them was just fantastic.

I am so glad I got to experience this and will again the next chance I get. So this is a band I've been into for a while now and yet to see. Since hearing this record earlier this year when it came out, I've definitely been wanting to see them live, and it was definitely worth the wait. We were greeted by the sight of a veritable forest of large potted plants around the stage, creating a surreal yet playful atmosphere, hinting at the kind of people these guys are, who created one of the most intriguing albums to come out this year. From the minute they hit the stage they had the entire audience enthralled.
Running through most of the tracks off their first full length album "Zaba" with enthusiasm and energy, standout tracks "Gooey" and "Hazey" and the tribal "Wyrd" got the crowd moving! They definitely sounded like a band that are destined for great things. Definitely ones to watch! It was great, it started with super chill band from Colombia that were super cool and had some really unique influences.
But then shit hit the fan. Another band came out Little Dragon.

A Swedish band that would sound good if they just turned off the singers mic and took it easy on the bass. The singer couldn't sing and it felt like their set would never end. It was weird and you couldn't understand a word she said. But enough about that malarky. Glass Animals my god it was fantastic. Every song was so good, they changed tempo or put in solos to the songs and it was so enjoyable. The lights where perfect and fit the songs lyrics so well.
Following the release of How to Be A Human , Glass Animals wasted no time at all before making an appearance on another late night television show, the Late Late Show with James Corden , and launching another expansive worldwide tour that is continuing on well into When we asked the band what their plan was following SXSW they simply replied,. Then hopefully back to America at some point.
