At just 14 years old, Dave Bayley met his friends; Drew Macfarlane, Edmund Irwin-Singer, and Joe Seaward. Little did they know that when they would finish school, they would start a band together. While studying at University, Glass Animals produced their debut E.P. titled, 'Leaflings' in 2012 and a year later signed with label – Wolf Tone. Through the label, they released their second E.P. record, which included the hit singles such as "Black Mambo."
And in 2014, the band had created enough material to record their exciting debut, 'Zaba', the album has helped to put Glass Animals on the map and has crafted them a dedicated fan base all over the world!
Their unique music combines elements of Dubstep with good ol' Dance music, with hints of R&B and Traditional rock. They describe themselves as "Like the sound of unicorns whispering, but with no cowbell." The band draws influence from other artists such as; Flying Lotus, Burial, Radiohead, Animal Collective.
Their live performances have been reviewed as "Super Trippy", "The Best Secret in Indie Pop", "One Of The Best Shows I have Ever Seen", "Amazing Young Band – Will Explode Soon."
