Finals are over and we can all step back, relax and have a great winter break!! Unless you actually have a job and realize that breaks or vacations don't exist anymore. And that my friends is what growing up looks like. yay.
I've been listening to this song for some time now and I think it's time we give these guys the recognition they deserve. All the way from Oxford, England, let's hear it for Dave Bayley, Drew MacFarlane, Edmund Irwin-Singer, and Joe Seaward! (yeah wooo yes cheers!). Glass Animals was created in 2012 and has been on the rise since. Their debut album, Zaba, was released in the UK on September 6th, 2014. This single, Gooey, made it to #33 on the Billboard Alternative Songs Chart. These guys have the typical indie-we-don't-care-what-you-think-but-we-do-also-care-because-we-love-our-fans-but-we-aren't-mainstream look and feel to them (too much?). There music is beautiful and awesome and their music videos are weird as hell. This song is the perfect combination of sassy, sexy and sophisticated beats and rhythms. (But ally what does a "sassy" or "sophisticated" beat sound like? and to that I say....figure it out). I like the xylophone (that's my guess as to what it is, I am probably way off) action we hear in the beginning of the song and throughout. something about that simple 5 note up-beat sticks in ya head.
ALSO, I know we are all fans of the reclusive R&B sensation Frank Ocean. His Grammy award winning album, Channel Orange, released in 2013. I don't know if you have noticed but he hasn't released anything since then (wah wah wahhhh). Well the wait is over (maybe). Ocean posted a new song titled "Memrise" to his soundcloud recently. Let's keep our figures crossed for that second album.
