Glass Animals has just released ‘Your Love (Déjà Vu,)’ and it’s already one of our favorite songs of 2020! It’s just a taste of what to expect from their upcoming third album, and if the album is anything like this song, we’re sure it’s going to be their best yet.
The song is about something we can all relate to, wanting to stay with something familiar even if it affects us negatively. Even the music to the song feels conflicted and addicting, it takes you into the story. The vocals are some of Dave Bayley, and the bass makes the song as good as it is. Although we can get caught up in the meaning of the song, it’s also a song that we can dance and bounce to, and just have a good time.
Listen to the ‘Your Love (Déjà Vu)’ here!
How Glass Animals Feel About The Song
We can each find our individual and personal ways to relate to the song, but what about how lead singer Dave Bayley feels? This is what he had to say!
I think we’ve all found ourselves in fucked up relationships that make us feel sad and helpless. Not necessarily something romantic—maybe it’s with a family member or a friend. A relationship that we know on some level is going to keep breaking our hearts. We let that person back into their lives over and over again, even though it always ends the same. Maybe you don’t confront it because you hope it’ll change with time. Or because it’s easier to let it slide and never set boundaries. Maybe you think you deserve that unhappiness. Or maybe you find some strange comfort in the chaos.
This song is about that…about being addicted to chaos. About doing or allowing something self-destructive because on some level you get off on the sadness that comes of it. It’s about wanting to float around and exist inside of that feeling because it has always been familiar to you. It’s something that a lot of people know from growing up in a tense household…so it can feel right to create that dynamic, even if you don’t realize you’re doing it.
