Depicting the anguish and frustration of the current global pandemic in a playful manner, Glass Animals set the scene for us all to lose ourselves in the uplifting manner created in ‘I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance)’ that is as infectious as they come.
“Talking is great, don’t get me wrong. But this pandemic has made so many of us look inwards in a way we maybe haven’t before. The uncertainty in the world and the inability to go out and create new memories makes you dig deep into the past. It really fed people’s deepest insecurities and rattled our foundations in so many ways. Relationships changed, friendships altered, and self-confidence was warped. I spent a lot of time talking to my dog, but even more time talking to myself in my head, which was keeping me up all night, and my friends and family were doing the same.” – Glass Animals
