Dave Bayley On The Moment He Thought Glass Animals Was Over

You'd think the lead singer of one of the world's biggest bands would be extremely happy, right? But for Dave Bayley from Glass Animals happiness is fleeting.

Dave is at a point in his life where he's grappling with meaning and purpose, questioning whether his pursuit of music is ultimately selfish and trying to understand what success really means.

In this chat, he discusses how his career and life have changed since his song "Heatwaves" became the number one song around the world, and why creating art has always been more important to him than the fame and money that comes with it.
