English indie rockers Glass Animals have followed up the sensational “Gooey” with the fun and bouncy “Pools.” It seems as though they’re channeling Architecture in Helsinki and world music vibes as they build a lush percussion section to support their expressive vocal harmonies. Dave Bayley sings precisely as he goes from a whisper to a falsetto shout. The song feels naturalistic with its thick beat, but occasional ambient electronic noises provide an interesting counter balance to the primal beat. Everything fits right in its place, and shows a confident band finding its own spot as well. Stream it below.
Glass Animals album Zaba is out June 9th via Harvest Records.
