Glass Animals
When Glass Animals frontman Dave Bayley first posted the band’s R&B-laced indie-pop online in 2010, the response was immediate and favorable, prompting him to quickly take the songs down. Come again? The truth was that Bayley was pursuing his medical degree, and like a good English chap, he didn’t want to get too wrapped up in all of this music hoo-ha. Two years later, with studies complete, it was time for Glass Animals, Take 2. The Oxford group reemerged, its hypnotic blend of smooth electronic grooves and funkified indie rock garnering heavy buzz. Here, the group plays behind its recent debut, Zaba—a lush, intricately crafted effort, deftly balancing bass-heavy tropical rhythms and Bayley’s airy croon.
