TVD Recommends:
Glass Animals at U St. Music Hall, 7/8

Glass Animals is a four-piece indie band out of Oxford, England that bridges the gap among experimental rock, R&B, and electronic music. Their songs rely on rich, breathy vocals, heavy bass, flirtatious electronics, and layers of tropical-sounding percussion–and the result is both sensual and soulful.

The band makes its way to DC’s U Street Music Hall next Tuesday night to promote their debut album, ZABA. If you’re a music fan who checks in here at TVD with any frequency, you won’t want to miss this show.

According to Glass Animals’ publicists, their first headlining U.S. tour is almost completely sold out. And despite releasing their first full-length album less than two months ago, this doesn’t surprise me at all.

The group — which has drawn comparisons to Alt-J, Wild Beasts, and Radiohead — is the first to join the Wolf Tone record label. The newly-formed label is the project of super-producer Paul Epworth, whose credits include Adele, Florence & The Machine, Crystal Castles, and others. With a provocative sound and acclaimed production value, Glass Animals is poised for commercial success. And it’s definitely on my list of bands to watch this year.

Glass Animals is about to blow up, and this will be a show you’ll remember. Catch them while you can in an intimate setting, because you probably won’t be so lucky on their next tour through D.C. (or wherever else). Also — expect a sexy evening, so dress accordingly.

Tickets for Tuesday’s show are available here for $12 (or $15 at the door). Doors are at 7 p.m., with two openers.
