When drummer Joe Seaward was involved in a life-altering accident in 2018, the indie-pop group became closer than ever.

Joe Seaward was terrified. It was late 2019, and the 31-year-old drummer for Glass Animals was preparing for a gig in the band's hometown of Oxford, U.K. Though they had played the Bullingdon, a 300-person venue, multiple times before — including a 2016 set ahead of their Mercury Prize-nominated album— this was a much different type of show. It was their first since Seaward had been involved in a horrific bicycle accident that left him with a broken femur and complex fracture in his skull.

Seaward’s accident wasn’t the first time the band had, as Bayley says, “narrowly escaped death.” In 2017, they stole golf carts before a show in upstate New York and took them up a small mountain. He lost control of his and hit a tree, while guitarist Drew MacFarlane and bassist Ed Irwin-Singer flipped theirs over, falling out just before their cart crunched Bayley’s. Everyone miraculously walked away with a few scratches.

Writing for others and spending time with Seaward at the hospital convinced Bayley that the next Glass Animals record had to be more rooted in his own life. The fan response to “Agnes” cemented that idea. For the first time, all the first-person musings on the album were to be from his own experience, stemming from questions he was pondering in that introspective period while waiting for his friend to recover.
