Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Gooey. By Songfacts®.

Hailing from the English city of Oxford (also home of Radiohead), the four members of Glass Animals have known each other since the age of fourteen. The quartet started making music together after leaving school and they came to the attention of Paul Epworth in 2013. The producer made them his first signing label to his Wolf Tone label.

This dreamy love anthem was produced by Paul Epworth and released as Glass Animal's second single from their debut album Zaba. It became the first airplay American hit for the English band when it entered the the Alternative Songs chart.

Frontman Dave Bayley told The Quietus the story of the song: "'Gooey' started off as a beat I'd made for a hip hop artist," he said. "I was just going through some beats I had made for someone, choosing which to send off, and I got to this one and listened to it a couple times. At that point it was just the bass line, drums, percussion, and little glock riff. All of a sudden those chords popped into my head and I got the piano out and started tinkering and then the, 'Right, my little Pooh Bear' vocal line popped into my head, and then the rest. I ended up making this eight-minute groove track. Then I showed it to the guys and we took it to the studio where we shaved off a few minutes."
