SONG FOR THE WEEKEND – Youth by Glass Animals

So towards the end of July it was already beginning to feel like ages since Glass Animals had announced their return with vibrant new single ‘Life Itself’, and I don’t know about you but I was getting pretty desperate for more new material and so was super happy when they announced the release of ‘Youth’. More laid-back than ‘Life Itself’ yet still with the
band’s staple ethnic touches, ‘Youth’ is a bewildering world of intricate instrumental layering, Dave’s woozy vocals and tender waves of nostalgia mixed in with regret – fitting it’s accompanying video perfectly. In case you don’t guess from watching the video, their upcoming album ‘How To Be A Human Being’ is a concept album, hence the new video follows on from the ‘Life Itself’ one, and when pieced with the song lyrics strings together a narrative which is still confusing to try to understand at this stage yet utterly mesmerising. Glass Animals are truly proving their reputation as ‘artists’ with this new music, and their upcoming second album will undoubtedly be one of the most exciting releases in music this year.
