Glass Animals - Life Itself

Glass Animals are back, and they mean business.

Glass Animals are back, and they mean business.



Enormo-banger



Since when did Glass Animals do certified, solid gold bangers? That’s no criticism to their previous material - debut album ‘Zaba’ was from the very top drawer - but ‘Life Itself’ is a different, more confident beast.

Shoving it’s way onto a dancefloor of jerking, awkward weirdo-pop, it’s like someone dragged Glass Animals v1.0 into Photoshop and clicked invert. An evolution and revolution in the same breath, now they strut to the beat, earworm chorus firmly displayed for all to see.

‘Life Itself’ is a challenge - a glove thrown down in the dirt. Where Glass Animals built foundations first time around, they’re planning skyscrapers so tall even The Shard is turning green with envy. Bring it on. [sc name="stopper" ]
