Glass Animals are excited to announce the release of their new self-titled EP today, November 25th, available here via Harvest Records in the U.S. The band, Dave Bayley, Drew MacFarlane, Edmund Irwin-Singer, and Joe Seaward, were the first signing to Paul Epworth's new label Wolf Tone in the UK. Glass Animals were selected as The Guardian's "New Band of The Day" just last week, calling band's music "seriously good" and "a band to watch next year."

Glass Animals vocalist and songwriter, David Bayley, draws influence for both music and artwork from his involvement in the world of medicine and neuroscience (at just 22 years old, he has studied both) creating a sound with its roots spread between electronic and live instrumentation. The result is the warm, narcotic space between a downbeat and a slow-burning groove.

Lead track from the self-titled EP, "Psylla", marked a new sonic phase for the band and is a good taste of their current sound and KCRW's blog recently picked the track as one you "should listen to right now." Having previously recorded all their music in an isolated, home-built studio ("The Shed"), deep in the forests of Oxfordshire, Dave Bayley moved with the band to the more urban surroundings of Paul Epworth's London studio. "'Black Mambo' is a dark and warped journey into the Oxfordshire woods that drips into your brain" (NME) while the cavernous drums of "Exxus" contrast with Dave's soulful vocals. "Woozy" premiered on Vibe.com who described it as "multifaceted moodiness with fuzzy live orchestrations and electronic nuances."

The band has toured with Chromatics and Yeasayer and made debut European appearances at the Midi, Primavera Nights and Reeperbahn festivals last year. Glass Animals will continue to tour in 2014.
