Glass Animals

Glass Animals, from London and the Southeast UK, have a comforting, unique sound. Their ability to mix experimental, electronic samples with accessible rhythms is not an easy feat. The music is at once tranquil and calming, but the grooves-driven sound gives Glass Animals a great deal of swagger.

Dave Bayley is the leading man behind Glass Animals, providing the soothing too-cool-for-school vocals as well as guitar and “sounds” (according to their MySpace). He’s joined by Drew MacFarlane on keys and guitar and Joe Seaward on drums. The new songs below may take a little longer to get into than your standard indie fare, but I’m on my third listen now and I’m finding it difficult to stop.

Also, I feel like I’ve got some swagger now too. So, thanks Glass Animals, for making me the man.
