It is hard to pick just one song to talk about from the up and coming UK band, Glass Animals sophomore album, How to be a Human Being. This album expands on the funk, psychedelic and pop sound that was laid down in their full length debut, Zaba released in 2014, and executes this with much more confidence. Every song on the album holds its own and has great replay value. The album as a whole has a colorful and fresh sound. That being said, my pick of the album is the closer, “Agnes”.
The song starts out with some witty beats that introduce you to a catchy pre-chorus. The percussion escalates and drops you into a complex, busy and yet relaxing, climax of the song. It is very layered and it is hard to focus on just one instrument or voice without noticing another one you didn’t hear previously. This is what I find appealing and gives Glass Animals great replay value, each thing individually is hard to focus on, but all together it creates a great and surreal soundscape. This song is a perfect example of that, it fully immerses you into a new world of music.
