The indie/alternative band, Glass Animals, recently released their fourth track from their sophomore album titled “Pork Soda”. This track is a product of the band’s How to be a Human Being album and Glass Animals’ interesting music tastes. The song itself is very catchy with its pop style tune and flow of lyrics. Not only are the vocals great, the beat behind the song is like none other that we’ve heard. Glass Animals did an exceptional job producing this record along with the music video that came out today. The music video is an art, and allows the band to express their creative personality. It starts off with a POV shot of a tray table full of being prepared and brought out to an elder man. Then the video switches scenes and narratives to an older woman dancing around a brightly colored pink room with her dog. Her dance moves are coordinated and synchronized with the “Pork Soda” song. The video switches narratives throughout the music video to an elder man and elder woman. The elder man is pictured surfing television stations while eating his dinner. He appears to watching fake television ads throughout the entire video and seems to not be to interested in the content. At the end of the “Pork Soda” music video, the narratives of the elder man and elder woman coincide when the woman appears to die and fall into the man’s arms.

After watching and reviewing the music video of “Pork Soda” multiple times, we find ourselves still struggling to understand its plot and characters. Glass Animals incorporated many quirky symbols into their video and expressed their creative freedom by producing a video of this kind. Overall, after watching the music video you will be left with many unanswered questions and a feeling of emptiness. It’s definitely one of the more strange, but good music videos that we’ve reviewed.
