Glass Animals – Golden Antlers

London band make brooding pop from bass elements.


Words by: Ruth Saxelby

Glass Animals are a new London band that practice alchemy with bass pressure and skittering percussion to glistening ends. They spin into a SBTRKT vein on the vaguely ominous Golden Antlers, yet reveal a softer, more Wild Beasts-y side on Cocoa Hooves. Apparently frontman and lyricist David Bayley has a background in neuroscience, which makes sense of the finely tuned precision underpins both tracks. Taken from their debut EP ‘Leaflings’ on new London label Kaya Kaya Records, you can stream both below.

Kaya Kaya Records will celebrate the launch of Glass Animals’ debut EP ‘Leaflings’ on Tuesday 19th June at Birthdays in Dalston, London
