Video of the Moment #1746: Glass Animals

Glass Animals clearly haven’t had enough of weirding us out. In the last year and a half they’ve given us the creepy videos for ‘Psylla’ (2013) and ‘Gooey’ (2014), but the Oxford band upped the ante this week with a new promo for ‘Black Mambo’, released in 2013 as a single backed by ‘Exxus’.

Set in Mexico in what the band describes as an opium den, the lead character eats something that looks like snakeskin, though between you and me, the stuff looks like bonito flakes, which are quite tasty. As you probably guessed, the snakeskin stuff has mental effects. If the title of the song isn’t obvious, this video is probably best avoided by those afflicted by herpetophobia, though I have to say the little scaly fella at the beginning is kind of cute! Watch the video below.

Past coverage on Glass Animals, including a live performance of ‘Black Mambo’ at London’s Meltdown Festival last June filmed by Georgio Testi, is this way. Glass Animals are on tour in the UK and Ireland in March; their biggest date in London thusfar at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on the 10th of March is already sold out.
