Glass Animals recently shared a live performance video of their hit single, “Heat Waves” off of their third album, Dreamland, which is currently available to stream/download via Universal Music at the following link.
This announcement comes just weeks after the group went “Live In The Internet” to celebrate the album release and perform for fans. Their performance of the single, “Heat Waves” became a momentous highlight of the show and showcases how Glass Animals were joined by hundreds of fans on Zoom while bringing together the global community that the band has built since the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
“I think 90 percent of a live concert’s atmosphere comes from the crowd. It’s about that togetherness and everyone getting on the same level and everyone in the room being part of the same thing. It’s impossible to create that same feeling on the internet. That’s why people still go to sports matches instead of just watching on TV.
That atmosphere doesn’t exist on the internet BUT…the internet is good for interacting in a different way. It’s the most powerful thing in the world. You can do things on the internet that you can’t do in real life. It is a new type of performance space. Just like you’d perform and interact differently in a tiny club to how you’d perform in a stadium…you have to interact differently on the web.
Gaming and social media have pioneered the way people do this and how people enjoy the internet. I think there’s a way to pull some of that cleverness into a streamed music event. So, we’re going to try to do something with that in mind, instead of just performing live to a totally empty room. We did that like every day on our first tour when we started the band, and it’s really not so fun!”– Dave Bayley, Singer/Songwriter of Glass Animals
“Heat Waves” is the latest release from their album Dreamland, which has been cruising the UK singles chart. Dreamland marks the group’s highest charting album to date entering at number two on the UK chart behind Taylor Swift and went straight into the Top 10 on the Billboard Chart with the highest chart position for a British alternative band since 1975.
Glass Animals is a British psychedelic-pop band whose three albums Zaba (2014), How To Be A Human Being, and Dreamland (2020) have received much acclaim. For additional information related to the group, please visit their official website.
