Glassacre

Glassacre's music plays at the edges of electronica , and pop while never really committing to either. Perhaps the best introduction to the band comes in the form of their first single, “Swimming In Greece”. The track acts not to provide an expectation of the Glassacre “sound” but more as an indicator of their approach and mashing of sensibilities.

Glassacre's music plays at the edges of electronica , and pop while never really committing to either. Perhaps the best introduction to the band comes in the form of their first single, “Swimming In Greece”. The track acts not to provide an expectation of the Glassacre “sound” but more as an indicator of their approach and mashing of sensibilities. Night time beats rolling around layers of turning guitars, warm and warning electronic tones calling from behind and an almost spoken sing song vocal. Two songs later and you’re being lifted away by the gorgeous and breezy astral pop of “Tension Agreement”.

Glassacre is a delayed conversation between it’s collective members. A kind of handing over and giving in of the constituent elements in the hope that something larger will form. The sometimes skewed pop of their first ep, “Slow Attack”, is perhaps a misleading introduction to the process that belay it - something between an exquisite corpse and Frankensteins bride. The collective will grow and shrink and the music will morph and paint with other colours. Rather than a band, this is the opportunity to be unrestrained in play and an exercise in distillation. « hide
