GLASS ANIMALS RELEASE “TOKYO DRIFTING” FT. DENZEL CURRY

It’s been a while since we heard new music from Glass Animals – but today, after much speculation from fans who spotted hidden graphics and messages across their socials and then the appearance of an interactive website (www.glassanimals.com) they’ve dropped the incendiary, bass-heavy ‘Tokyo Drifting – a brand new track which features American rapper Denzel Curry.  ‘Tokyo Drifting’ is part of the band’s Fresh Fruit series of collaborations.

On making ‘Toyko Drifitng’, Dave Bayley says – “The first thing Denzel said to me about the track was “this is fire.” Then he said, “Is this you flexin’?” and I said – “Yeh…it is…sort of. It’s an ironic internal flex – me as a narrator describing/taking the piss out of an extreme alter ego version of myself; a version of me that can do things that I’m uncomfortable doing. Wavey Davey is my fucked-up Sasha Fierce; he’s a geezer, a street fighter, he can dance, he parties hard, he’s spontaneous. He can take hits and be told he is shit and not care because he’s confident. He can fight everything the world throws at him.”

“I think this kind of character is someone we all create for ourselves now to some extent. We have these curated versions of ourselves on the internet – beautiful, edited, cool, distilled versions of us, all slightly super human. You can push and push and push yourself to hide and ignore your vulnerabilities like that…but it comes at a cost. It’s not real and it isn’t sustainable.”
