“We just started making weird noises and worked out what sounded cool!”


INFORMATION Glass Animals play UEA on 17th March. Tickets available from ueatickets.ticketabc.com


and musically we had a lot of fun making the first track and also Mama’s Gun. I think we’ve all got different favourites. Tese new songs are pretty lively and the build in your songs seems to have increased on this album. Were you thinking about your live audiences’ reactions more this time around? Yeah, the first record was very much a studio record. We didn’t know what we were doing or how it would translate live. We spent two and half years touring it after that and the songs changed quite a lot over that period. We experimented a bit, tried things out and saw how people reacted to it, and learned quite a lot from it. So we were aware of that when it came to the second album, we knew how things work live a bit better and that did probably go into the way we made the tracks. Also we like to keep the acoustic instruments on the album raw and not overly produced. We don’t do a billion takes of everything, and that gives it a bit more of a live feel as well I think. A couple of years ago you were playing in a basement to four people. Now you are doing extraordinarily well. What is it about your music that you hope speaks to people so successfully? Blimey! I think we love playing live and that’s been an asset to us. We’ve grown into larger stages. I don’t really know why people like it – the four of us like it, and we’re all quite different to each other and critical, so if we can say we like it then that’s good enough for us. I wanted to ask about the video that accompanies Season 2, Episode 3 that you created with the director Whoopi. Has the reaction been what you hoped for it? Yeah it’s been incredible. He’s amazing, that man, we’ve got to know him quite well. We


did this event in LA where we did a live version of the album – a lot of the actors from the videos came in and there were props from the video. Te audience could come and interact with them, and Whoopi did some projections of the artwork he’d done for the video – the computer game stuff. Te reaction has been brilliant. We also made a computer game to go along with it. Just one of those crazy ideas you have when you’re a teenager, and then you actually get to do them! You have some very ardent fans – which of your songs goes down the best when you play live? Te one that people mostly want us to play, and also the one that’s most difficult to play is Agnes, it’s very personal and it’s very complicated! We recorded it in the studio and it uses so many synths that we can’t bring them all on tour with us unfortunately. We’ve had to use samples, and there’s quite a lot off stuff going on. It’s been quite difficult but that is the one that people really want us to play so we’ve had to find a way to make it work. What are your plans for the rest of the year? Are you going to be playing some festivals? I know you’ve been announced for Reading already. Yeah Reading’s going to be awesome! We went to Reading together three of four times when we were younger as it’s near Oxford, and we did all the things you do at festivals and saw loads of our favourite bands there. So to play on that stage is incredible, and hopefully we’ll be able to bring some of our mates from home along with us. We’re basically just playing as much as we can this year – we’re playing a bunch of American festivals too. It’s mental!
