5 Ways To Survive The Daily Grind, Thanks To Glass Animals

Posted on August 26, 2016

Glass Animals want to teach YOU How To Be A Human Being. That’s the name of their second studio album, out today! In keeping with the album’s theme, we’ve soundtracked the album to things that happen in your daily life. So if you’re struggling to deal with other human beings, or simply reaching some #AdultGoals in your own existence, don’t worry: we’ve got your back.

1. How to survive waking up in the morning

The temptation to sleep in is VERY STRONG, especially on Mondays. Fall back into paradise while staying awake with a song or two to transport you away from the daily grind! Glass Animals song pairing: “The Other Side of Paradise”

2. How to survive eating another pathetic lunch

We’ve all been there: you sleep through your alarm, realize you never made your lunch the night before, and boom… another baloney sandwich. Sometimes, your local cafe will come through with an affordable option. Don’t get caught up in the mayonnaise struggle; let someone else deal with your “hangry”-ness. Glass Animals song pairing: “[Premade Sandwiches]”

3. How to survive a screaming child on public transit

This one is simple: Noise-isolating headphones. Drown out a howling toddler with your own version of “Youth.” Glass Animals song pairing: “Youth”

4. How to survive annoying co-workers

There are days where the last thing you want to do is talk about your weekend plans. Water cooler gossip just doesn’t have the appeal it used to! Why can’t they be as interesting as the characters in that weekly sitcom? Pretend like you’ve been planted into THAT circle of employees. You’ll fit in, even if you’re a tad delusional! Glass Animals song pairing: “Season 2 Episode 3”

5. How to survive ANOTHER phone call from your parents

“Mom… we talked an hour ago. I made sure to shut the stove off. The dog’s dish is full of food, and I brushed my teeth.” These are the conversations we have… when we have to go to pick-up milk. At the end of the day, it’s all love, and you just have to remind yourself… this is life! Glass Animals song pairing: “Life Itself”
