This song of the week is Pork Soda by Glass Animals. This song comes from indie rock band Glass Animals’ latest album How to be a Human Being. The strange nonsensical lyrics like, “pineapples are in my head” confuse and draw in listeners. According to the lead vocalist Dave Bayley the title originated from a tattoo. “It was a giant pig, a stick figure pig, a really cool pig. It said pork soda in big scrawling letters, I thought it was the best tattoo I’ve ever seen. It was this woman, she gave us a load of gifts, it was amazing, 30 little glass animals. I saw her tattoo, and I was like, ‘that’s sick – why?’ And she was like, ‘I just like pork soda,’ and I thought that was really cool, it played into the mentality of the person in that song. I just really liked the phrase. It’s a drink. It’s a drink and it’s a meal, they put pork and cook it in coca cola in a stew. She says it’s the best meal and a drink,”  he told This is definitely a great song to listen to if you’re interested in indie rock bands.
