Slinkyindie trip-hoppers Glass Animals have released the video for their new single ‘Gooey.’ The Oxfordshire four-piece, fresh back from a European tour with St.Vincent, are one of the first signings to Paul Epworth’s new Wolf Tone label. In case you’re unfamiliar with maestro Epworth, this is pretty big news, but their sultry beats and dreamy songwriting mean it’s hardly much of a surprise.
The surreal ‘Gooey’ video, directed by Australian director-duo The Apiary, follows the journey of a mysterious gloopy substance. “We wanted something that ran well alongside the threads of youth, naivety and the sort of playfulness in the lyrics,” says Dave Taylor, Glass Animal’s frontman. “The Apiary’s films already had those elements, so we asked them to interpret ‘Gooey’ as a film. This is the result.”
Their new ‘Gooey’ EP is released digitally on 8th April via Harvest Records.
