Black Mambo - Glass Animals

Black Mambo

ZABA
electronic trip-hop indie british trip hop


Black Mambo is the second track on and first single from Glass Animals' debut album ZABA. In a literal sense, the song is about a sloth and a mole facing off in a game of dominoes. In a track-by-track, frontman Dave Bayley mentions that he thought of the song material while watching Breaking Bad. In Breaking Bad, Walter White is constantly facing off against adversaries that he seems outmatched by. Though usually the underdog, he uses his intellect to achieve his goals. With this in mind, the song is more vaguely about this notion: being outmatched by an opponent but trying to keep step with them.


Oxfordshire quartet Glass Animals are Dave Bayley, Drew MacFarlane, Edmund Irwin-Singer and Joe Seaward. They grew up together from the age of thirteen and started working together when Dave showed Drew some tracks. They self-released a 5 track demo in 2012 which form the basis of the 'Leaflings EP', released via Kaya Kaya Records. It included 'Cocoa Hooves', 'Golden Antlers' and 'Exxus', later included on the 'Black Mambo / Exxus EP'.

Black Mambo - Glass Animals

What'll be now mister Moe
Whisper slow in curls of smoke
Take a back seat or play fair on
Dance with me and shake your bones.

Slow down, it's a science
He's been waiting to bring you down
Snake eye with a slight smile
Who can hold you and shake you dry.

Labels lays a [?] on plush pillows
Slender caves of rating gone
Paperback dreams in head deep thoughts
Twitch their toes to black mambo

Slow down, it's a science
He's been waiting to bring you down
Snake eye with a slight smile
Who can hold you and shake you dry

Wanna play jean house this slow
A time in all, fly this to his nose
Tickle head cheek can take your throne
Pump your veins with gushing gold.

Slow down, it's a science
He's been waiting to bring you down
Snake eye with a slight smile
Who can hold you and shake you dry

Who can hold you
Who can hold you
Who can hold you
He can hold you
Who can hold you
Who can hold you
Who can hold you
He can hold you
