Deconstructing a pop song (Glass Animals – Heat Waves)


Let’s see what we can learn from a radio-ready pop production like Glass Animals – Heat Waves. In this video we’ll deconstruct the beat, the music theory, the sound design and composition and the arrangement together! I use Ableton Live in this video, but the same concepts apply in any DAW!
