Album Review: Glass Animals – Dreamland

Posted on 11 Aug 2020 at 8:16am

It’s quite a flip going from talking freely about other people’s lives to revealing the inner workings of your own, even more so when you know your friends are listening. But while some pivot from one approach to the other in seeking fresh inspiration, for Glass Animals the prompt was far more traumatic.

Having replicated their popularity across the Atlantic in Britain with the ambitious second album How To Be A Human Being, the quartet from Oxford were enjoying some down time when drummer Joe Seward was involved in a near fatal accident whilst cycling, one that left him with brain damage and unable at first to speak, walk or talk.

Lead singer Dave Bayley spent the recuperative weeks that followed at his hospital bed-side, and the precept for Dreamland subconsciously germinated with it; instead of sculpting the confessions of random strangers into stories, it was time for the observations to land closer to home.
