Glass Animals
"Pork Soda"

UK Promos

The Oxford quartet have released another track from last August's album 'How To Be A Human Being' - their alluringly-named 'Pork Soda'. Mmm, fizzy ham.

Catchy but bonkers in a way only Glass Animals can be, the song comes with an equally out-there video by Eoin Glaister and involves an elderly couple, a human dog, and some rather strange infomercials.

A remote control and an actual dog combine to bring about the couple's initial meeting - and very romantic it is too, with the peignoir-clad woman falling through the man's ceiling right into his lap.

Meanwhile, if you want to find out more about the exciting goods appearing in the infomercials and are someone who thinks sprayable mayo ('Spray-onnaise') sounds like a terrific, time-saving idea, Glass Animals have created an interactive site specially for you.

Black Mambo is the latest track from Glass Animals' debut album Zaba to get the promo treatment, but it actually precedes the tracklisted material. As with all their songs, there's something unsettling and sinister in Dave Bayley's voice: it's like being offered a delicious-looking confection by a stranger, only to bite into it and discover poison at the centre.

Sensual, hypnotic and slightly alien, this video for Glass Animals' Hazey is the perfect accompaniment for the track. We love the instruments and arrangements on all their songs, but sometimes the songs themselves don't quite hit the spot for us. This video, though, with its focus on the fluidly double-jointed dancers, makes us want to listen and watch again and again.

First of all, we're big fans of Glass Animals. Our favourite track and video combo last year was for Exxus, which delighted and disturbed us in equal measure. Psylla we also liked greatly. The minutiae of decay and regrowth, the sheer busyness of stuff living and dying before our eyes but on a scale so small we barely register it, make for fascinating images as animator Rafael Bonilla, who collaborated with Glass Animals on both projects, demonstrated.

Guitar quartet Glass Animals has come up with another impressive track not long after the eerie, mesmerising Exxus. Psylla sap-sucking insects like greenfly and cicadas - now have a song named after them, and fittingly, the promo is set in nature.

Exxus is icy and bleak and siren-seductive. The bass, faint and deep, murmurs like the pulse of a dreaming giant that's rolled over in his sleep and pinned you down, radiating the only heat around in this eerie piece. If the mambo from Glass Animals's other A-side didn't bite last time, now it slithers over and sinks a black, honeyed poison into your veins.
