LISTEN: Glass Animals - "Holiest (Feat. Tei Shi)"
Glass Animals have just announced the details of their debut full length, ZABA but today they share another cut from their forthcoming EP, Gooey which will be released April 8 via Harvest Records.
"Holiest" features the beautiful Tei Shi on vocals.
Dave Bayley comments, "we wanted to work with Tei Shi because she has an amazing voice and this super-cool modern New York RnB style thing going on. So we sent her a couple beats we had lying around that we thought she could really add something to. And she sent back a great vocal about both loving and hating something. I thought it would be fun to play the character that she's addressing in my part so the the different voices then help tell the story from two different perspectives."
As one of the first signings to Paul Epworth's Wolf Tone label in the UK, Glass Animals have polished their pulsing 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 instantly developed their sound, merging their love of analogue with digital, and transforming their psych-fuzz into something a whole lot wilder.
Armed with a full LP to come in June, and a seriously impressive live set-up, Glass Animals are primed for a very exciting twelve months and beyond. The Gooey EP will be released digitally April 8th on Harvest Records.
Glass Animals are: Dave Bayley, Drew MacFarlane, Edmund Irwin-Singer, Joe Seaward.
