A nostalgic memoir of life so far...
Glass Animals have always been something else, gravitating around the ordinary and creating dream-like experiences.
Recently, they announced their new upcoming album Dreamland (check out the mind-blowing website they created) with the pilot single with the same name. Dave explains:
The idea for this album came at a time of confusion and uncertainty. My best friend was in the hospital. I didn’t know if he’d make it. The future was damn scary and completely unknown. During those weeks in the hospital, it was so difficult to look forwards that I found myself looking backwards. Digging around in my mind, pulling up old memories, finding comfort in them even if they were uncomfortable in themselves. Speaking to friends and family, I’ve realised that a lot of people are experiencing a similar sort of confusion now. Everything that we thought we could see clearly in front of us has been thrown into the air, and all the while, we can’t be out finding our footing. We can’t be out creating new memories, so…we’re diving back head-first into the old ones. I hear that in conversations. I see it in what people are watching on TV. In what we’re listening to. In what we’re eating. In dreams.
The track comes with a delightful DIY video by Dave himself and hopefully will bring you to a dreamland:
