About Glass Animals
Current lead vocalist of the band Dave Bayley initially was planning on going to medical school at London King's College. However, it was before Adele's producer Paul Epworth saw the group performing in London. Dave was raised in Texas, where he used to listen to hip-hop. Perhaps, that has inspired the style of the Glass Animal music.
The band’s debut album called “Zaba” in 2014 with Paul Epworth's label Wolf Tone. This album brought seven million people to listen to it on Spotify last year, in 2015. Their songs “Toes”, “Black Mambo” and “Gooey” from this album ended up being the most popular on Apple Music. In August 2015 the group released the Deluxe version of the album.
The Glass Animals have performed the single “Gooey” on 2014 on Late Night with Seth Meyers and then on The Late Show with David Letterman the year after.
The group visited both hemispheres and performed on over 130 shows just in 2015. Their October 2015 US tour included sold-out performances across States including T5 in New York City, The Midland in Kansas City and The Riverside in Milwaukee and two sold out shows at The Wiltern in Los Angeles.
You might be able to recognise some of the names of the songs of Glass Animals. Here are few of their biggest singles: "Black Mambo", "Pools", "Gooey", "Hazey", "Lose Control" (with Joey Badass), "Life Itself", "Youth", etc.
