WATCH: Glass Animals – ‘Gooey’
Oxfordshire quartet Glass Animals have dropped the stunningly shot music video for their new single Gooey, the first taster of the band’s forthcoming debut album, which is set to be released later this year.
Shot by Australian director-duo The Apiary (Lily Coates & Gavin Youngs), the video treads through themes of youth, love and time in an appropriately filmic style complete with a slight slow-motion effect.
Glass Animals’ frontman Dave Bayley has said of the video: “We wanted something that ran well alongside the threads of youth, naivety and the sort of playfulness in the lyrics. The Apiary’s films already had those elements, so we asked them to interpret Gooey as a film.”
Gooey‘s sound is slick, slightly sultry, tranquil and looped with plenty of reverb. The song and its accompanying video both take experimental approaches to tone and movement.
