Glass Animals’ ultra chill album “Zaba” is one to be reckoned with.
After listening to this album for the first time I have been infatuated with this band and can’t put it down. To describe this band I’d like to refer to a quote from their song “Gooey.” The song says “You just wanna know those peanut butter vibes.” After thinking about it, this band is most definitely serving “peanut butter vibes.” This album is smooth, satisfying, sometimes creamy, sometimes crunchy and most definitely leaving you thirsty for more.
Although I enjoyed every song off this album, I highly recommend listening to “Gooey,” “Hazey” and “Black Mambo.” The singers haunting, yet gorgeous, voice paired with groovy/psychedelic beats makes for a perfect combination. This album is perfect for parties, hangouts or just something to listen to if you want to wind down after a hard day’s work.
