Glass Animals: Gold Lime
Glass Animals have proven they have the reach to pluck the forbidden fruit that is just beyond reach for those of a similar ilk. Densely layered soundscapes emulating the thickest of untamed jungles wrapped in the raspy blanket of Dave Bayley's smokey register have fueled a meteoric rise but the Oxford boys aren't hounding all this freshness for original cuts.
Their knack for churning out top-shelf covers first raised eyebrows when they decided to take on Kanye West's "Love Lockdown" for Triple J's "Like A Version." This time they have exoticized Erykah Badu's "The Healer" and Yeah Yeah Yeah's "Gold Lion" for the double-cover, "Gold Lime."
