Glass Animals have caught my attention lately, and it all started with this song- “Gooey”. I was visiting a friend in Austin and she played it on her stereo; I was immediately hooked. “Doesn’t this song sound so sexual?!”, she inquired. She had assigned this classification because the first time SHE heard it she was amongst sweaty bodies at a live show, dancing with a new love interest. Now, several dozen listens later, I’m on the same page as her. Can you hear it?
The lyrics don’t make much sense, but the song isn’t about the message. It’s something to sway to. To dance to while you’re tipsy in you’re living room, getting ready to go out. Give it a try. It’s also great for post-party chill down. Glass Animals has a great collection of songs and have recently released an album, “Zaba.” If you’re keen on “Gooey”, there other stuff is worth a listen.
