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 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 highly-buzzed Oxford group reemerged with a hypnotic debut blending smooth electronic grooves and funkified indie rock. Here, the group plays behind its recent sophomore effort, How To Be A Human Being—a lush, intricately crafted effort, deftly balancing bass-heavy tropical rhythms and Bayley’s airy croon.
