About: Glass Animals are an internationally known four-member band based out of Oxford, England. They were childhood friends from the age of 14, and formed the group once they finished school. Glass Animals released the debut EP, “Leaflings,” in 2012 while in college. Glass Animals vocalist and songwriter David Bayley draws influence for both music and artwork from his involvement in medicine and neuroscience. In 2013, the group signed to Paul Epworth’s label Wolf Tone. The band released their first full album “Zaba,” in 2014, which blended electronics with indie guitar music. The group will be releasing their highly anticipated second album, “How to Be a Human Being,” in August. You can preorder the album on Itunes now.
