It’s not like Glass Animals were exactly obscure. “Gooey,” a single from the Oxford, UK band’s 2014 debut album Zaba, went Platinum in the United States off the back of alternative radio rotation; it was even more successful in Australia, finishing the year as one of government-funded alternative station Triple J’s most popular tracks. The group’s 2016 sophomore LP How To Be A Human Being spun off a few more radio hits and was shortlisted for Great Britain’s Mercury Prize, tinting their commercial success with a hint of prestige. Maybe they weren’t a household name, exactly, but their name was out there. By the standards of 2010s rock music, you could reasonably describe them as “kind of a big deal.”
