Glass Animals – Zaba (New Vinyl)



New sealed copy. 2022 reissue. Gatefold jacket.

Zaba (stylised as ZABA) is the debut studio album by English rock group Glass Animals, released on 9 June 2014 by Wolf Tone/Caroline International and on 17 June 2014 by Harvest Records in the US.

It is primarily a psychedelic indie pop record. The album's sound is characterized by obscure tropical percussion and jungle timbres. This musical motif reflects lead singer David Bayley's exotic subject matter, which was inspired by the William Steig children's book The Zabajaba Jungle. To achieve this sound, Bayley would record ambient sounds of a field near his house or the chewing of rabbits and other animals, and percussive sounds of cooking utensils and children's toys. Some of the songs were based specifically on certain adventure novels: "Toes", for example, intends to recreate the atmosphere of The Island of Doctor Moreau and Heart of Darkness.

As of October 2016 Zaba has sold 600,000 equivalent copies worldwide. It charted at No.12 in Australia and No.92 in the UK, where it has sold 18,824 copies, 6,515 of them as streams, according to the Official Charts Company.
