Glass Animals “Hazey” Music Video

Glass Animals

Our favourite UK chill poppers Glass Animals have released a mesmerizing new music video for “Hazey” off their debut full length album ZABA. Directed by Georgia Hudson, the video captures a London based dance collective wearing sweet shoes, contorting their bodies to the beat of the music in a style of dance called ‘bone breaking’ in an abandoned warehouse.

According to the press release, Glass Animals Dave Bayley had the following to say about the clip:

Every day these dancers put themselves through torturous stretches and contortion exercises using ropes and towels to make themselves more flexible and their movements more fluid. They isolate themselves and focus on slowly building their craft, with a long term goal of being able to add another dance-move to their catalogue, and a longer term goal of stitching those moves together into something cool and beautiful. It all requires a huge amount of dedication and discipline. To me, ‘Hazey’ is about a parental character who has abandoned those values and eventually becomes wracked by regret. That character speaks in the choruses in the falsetto voice. The verses are spoken by that character’s child in full voice. This boy has matured quickly to pick up the pieces dropped by his parent. It was his attitude that I thought was summed up by the bone breakers.
