Glass Animals: “I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance)” (First Reactions)

Duration Of Song: 3:15; Released via Wolf Tone Records 09.10.21

Indie pop group, Glass Animals have returned with a brand new song following their recent #1 achievement with Dreamland‘s, “Heat Waves,” on the Billboard Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart. “I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance)” is destined to be their next chart topper in my opinion.

Dubbed track #17 as part of the (+Bonus Levels) package of their third album, lead singer Dave Bayley preaches about living and enjoying life in the present on the new track. See chorus:

“Don’t wanna talk, baby, I just wanna dance
I don’t wanna talk, no more living in the past, baby
Don’t wanna talk, baby, I just wanna dance
And I’m not gonna stop till I forget what we had”

I don’t know about you but I got some serious Tame Impala vibes all throughout the song most notably in between the pre-chorus and first chorus sections. #earsblessed

This is definitely a track you’ll love if you enjoyed all the quirkiness and unique sounds that Dreamland provided. I feel like this could be the launchpad for the album to reach more audiences all around the world. I applaud the fact that a small band like them has gotten a taste of that mainstream success. They deserve it!
