Glass Animals today announce the forthcoming release of ‘Pork Soda’, the third single to be taken from their critically acclaimed second album, ‘How To Be A Human Being’. Inspired by a stranger’s nonsensical murmurings overheard by frontman Dave Bayley on the street, ‘Pork Soda’ opens with a characteristically off-kilter chant of ‘Pineapples are in my head / Got nobody cause I’m braindead,’ layered over the faint sound of old bin lids and scrap metal repurposed as a drum. The off-kilter percussion flourishes into a glitchy electronic beat as Bayley’s breezy vocals intensify, engaged in conflict with the track’s mysterious subject, ‘Why can’t we laugh now like we did then? How come I see you and ache instead?’. Dazzling and immersive while remaining outlandish and offbeat, ‘Pork Soda’ is yet another fascinating foray into Glass Animals’ strange world.
The band continue to demonstrate why they were one of the true global breakthrough artists of 2016. ‘How To Be A Human Being’ was released at the end of August via Caroline International/Wolf Tone to rave reviews and BBC Radio 1 & BBC 6Music A-listed singles ‘Life Itself’ and ‘Youth’. They have now amassed well over 250 million Spotify streams and 2.6million monthly listeners, obliterating all expectations created by debut album ‘Zaba’s’ word of mouth buzz.
The band also had a phenomenal live year in 2016, selling out entire UK, EU and US tours. They also had notable TV appearances in the UK on Later With Jools Holland, and in the US with The Late Late Show With James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Late Night With Seth Meyers.
The band are currently touring arenas & stadia in Australia & New Zealand before returning to tour the UK, including a massive sold-out show at London’s Brixton Academy (their biggest UK headline show to date). Full list of forthcoming UK shows is as follows;
