Listen: Glass Animals’ seductive new single “Gooey”

on February 17, 2014, 5:00pm

Last year, British four-piece Glass Animals became the first band to sign with Wolf Tone, a new label started by famed producer-to-the-stars Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence Welch, Foster the People). The band — whose off-kilter, otherworldly blend of psych-pop and trip-hop suggests a wacky cross between Alt-J and Flying Lotus — return this spring with their Gooey EP, produced by frontman David Bayley and executive produced by Epworth himself.

Like the eccentric stylings of their 2013 singles “Psylla” and “Black Mambo”, the EP’s title track is hard to categorize, yet easy to succumb to. Lined with gorgeous, slinky falsettos and a slow, simmering groove that could only be described as, yes, gooey, it’s the kind of subtle, body-moving track that’ll tingle the hips as much as the ears. Listen below.

The Gooey EP arrives on April 8th via Wolf Tone/Harvest Records. The band’s debut album is expected to hit shelves later this year.
