The BBC at Glastonbury 2014 (Sunday): Glass Animals performing at the BBC Introducing Stage

Wherever you will be hanging your hat this weekend, whether you’re joining the sheep at Worthy Farm or you’ve got your feet up in front of the telly, us here at TGTF will have you covered when it comes to Glastonbury 2014. The dedicated people they are, the folks at the BBC will be working all hours during the festival and feeding us live coverage as it becomes available. What does this mean for you? We’ll be passing along all the best bits to you, our faithful readers.

Oxford band Glass Animals released their debut album ‘Zaba’ earlier this month, the first LP under producer Paul Epworth’s new Wolftone label. BBC Introducing filmed not one but two videos of the band performing at their stage Sunday afternoon at Glastonbury 2014 and we’ve got them here for your delectation. First is one of the groovier cuts from the album, ‘Hazey’. But if you’re familiar at all with ‘Zaba’, you’ll be surprised with this live treatment, as it’s quite different.

Regular TGTF readers will recall our posting back in April of Glass Animals’ superb cover of Kanye West’s ‘Love Lockdown’ after they’d laid it down in Oz superbly for national radio station there triple j. Just as it had done to presenters Matt and Alex down under, us here at TGTF were basically rendered speechless by it. The cover made a welcome appearance at Glasto to close out the band’s set, delighting the BBC Introducing punters. (I particularly enjoyed the grooving of the folks down the front, as well as the dancing of the chap in the back with the hat, who was definitely getting into it!) One has to wonder what Mr. West has to say about the cover, considering the original triple j video now has over 200,000 views (holy cow).

For more of the BBC’s Glastonbury coverage online, head this way. Stay tuned for more videos from Glasto 2014 right here on TGTF.
