The band’s knack for an undeniable chorus is evidenced early on the sensuous Hot Sugar, while their experimental leanings shine on Tokyo Drifting which features rapper Denzel Curry. Things take a cinematic turn on It’s All So Incredibly Loud and Domestic Bliss, though the band’s energetic production reaches its height on Heat Wave which cements the fact Glass Animals truly know their way around a beat.
Closing track Helium marries the band’s indie rock roots with a stunning ambient outro to full effect, while also leaving listeners spellbound by vocalist Dave Bayley’s magnetic croon.
Dreamland by Glass Animals is out August 7 via Wolf Tone/Universal.
