Glass Animals will release their new single ‘Gooey’ on 7th April 2014 through Wolf Tone.
Oxfordshire quartet Glass Animals follow-up last year’s scorching Psylla single with the first taster to their forthcoming debut album, due out in the late Spring.

As one of the first signings to Paul Epworth’s Wolf Tone label, Glass Animals have polished their indie electronica-by-way-of-RnB under the production of the band’s vocalist and writer Dave Bayley, and Epworth’s guiding hand.
Having left the confines of their creative hub in the woodlands of Oxfordshire (referred to as The Shed), the band took up residence at Epworth’s London studio in the Autumn of 2013. It’s a move that has developed their sound, merging their love of analogue with digital, and transforming their psych-fuzz into something a lot wilder.
Gooey is unashamedly experimental in both its tone and approach, and caught the eye of Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood who, as ambassador for Independent Venue Week, recently booked Glass Animals to headline a sell-out show at Oxford’s Jericho Tavern.
Armed with an LP to come later in the year, a neuroscience degree (Bayley’s not just a hat-rack), and a seriously impressive live set-up, Glass Animals are primed for a very exciting twelve months.
