Glass Animals Unveil Video For New Single A Tear In Space (Airlock)

Friday, 07 June 2024 Written by Jon Stickler

Glass Animals have released a new single called A Tear In Space (Airlock).

Offering their familiar psych-infused, futuristic indie-pop production, the track serves as the latest preview of the British Grammy and BRIT-nominated band's new album, 'I Love You So F***ing Much', due out on July 19 via Polydor.

Exploring themes around an all-consuming love, it arrives with a video that mirrors the song's emotional intensity, directed by Taylor Fauntleroy and Drew Kirsch. The pair said:

"This concept really began with Dave’s idea to get himself in a wind tunnel and throw things at him, which sounded great until we realised we might kill him and/or get sued. That led to us to really work to visualise the emotional experience of A Tear in Space and find abstract techniques to tell this story which is about trying to get close to someone who’s pushing you away and tugging and pulling at you until you lose your identity entirely. We did also get to throw some things at Dave which was a highlight." 

Frontman, songwriter, and producer Dave Bayley added: "The roses, the dining table, the candles and the suit are all symbols of love and care. All juxtaposed by a big cold scientific machine made of blades that can only blow things away and destroy. The blades get faster as you get closer. It peels the layers off you until there are none left, and then it stretches you and pulls you apart until you’re obliterated. The irony I guess is that even if you do manage to push through the wind and make it to the core of the beast, it just chops you to bits anyway!"

Glass Animals previously teased the record with its first single, Creatures In Heaven. They'll support the LP with a world tour, billed as Human Music Group Sensations Glass Animals: TOUR OF EARTH, which kicks off this summer with shows across North America. The European leg will take place in the autumn, with UK and Ireland arena dates scheduled between October 30 and November 7. Tickets are on sale now.
