Prior to the release of this new album, Glass Animals shared three singles from it, 'Life Itself', 'Youth' and 'Season 2 Episode 3'. Each of which showed a completely different side to the band and managed to highlight the diversity within their own sound. As you can imagine, the finished album 'How To Be A Human Being' stretches this ethos out to the nth degree and gives one of the most original and eclectic records we have heard all year.
Those who have been enjoying those singles on repeat will be glad to know that the album does maintain that same quality from the previews. With a fondness for creativity and experimentation, 'How To Be A Human Being' takes the traditional convention of an indie-pop group and twists it into a collection of individual inspirations that have both similar traits and a varied direction. Quite simply, this is what every band should be doing when looking to create an interesting album.
Not a single duff track among them, this returning release is simply stunning from start to finish. Broadening their own horizons in the process, they have managed to make the different fun and catchy, something seldom seen in today's musical zeitgeist.
