CRITIC REVIEWS

The Line of Best Fit

ZABA is one of the strongest debut albums of the year so far. It’s totally invigorating... and the quartet provide us with a sophisticated-palate blend of sonic pleasures.

DIY

Studio visionary is only half the story here, because if there’s one thing that Glass Animals have perfected for the first time during their short tenure, it’s hooks.

NME

That singer Dave Bayley is a qualified doctor perhaps explains their brainiac aesthetic, all intricate beats and time signatures, but their songs have heart to go with the giant brain.

Under The Radar

ZABA, their full-length debut, sounds immediately familiar but implacable. It's sleek, sexy, and irrefutably odd.

Drowned in Sound

Whilst Glass Animals excel at sustaining mood all that effort never really builds to any kind of release, just ultimately fading away beneath a queasy drape of melody and a frustrating sense of unfulfilment.
