Glass Mountain – Two dates for Leeds’ venues in September and November

“… Contender for Track of The Year, this one. Big ups, Glass Mountain …” BBC INTRODUCING

Since their debut release, Glacial,  Bradford quartet Glass Mountain has a growing reputation for soulful and beautiful music.  Gin Flows Through My Veins was released in November 2017, followed by the Wow and Flutter EP earlier in 2018.

Have to Lie, the EP’s closing track,  sees the lead vocal, laid emotionally bare, taking centre stage until orchestral drums, cellos and theremins lead to a moment of deep sadness and desperation. This is about saying we’re fine when we’re not, something which resonates with singer and lyricist  Harry Hanson.  Harry has since advocated sharing thoughts with anyone who will listen; emphasising that he’s come to realise this doesn’t burden anyone.

 Glass Mountain’s video was shot on Super 8 cine film by London filmmaker Adrian Cousins. You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRqaxmvVEg4&feature=youtu.be

 The band has announced live dates this autumn, including a headline Leeds performance and a special intimate performance with Gengahr in November.

Here’s a special announcement just received from the band: 

“GLASS MOUNTAIN // CALLING ALL BRASS PLAYERS
 
On Sunday 23 September we’re playing at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds. One of our new songs features BIG BURSTS OF BEAUTIFUL BRASS. We have a handful of trumpet and trombone players joining us for this special gig. However, we would love to turn this into a bigger, more beautiful spectacle. If you play a brass or wind instrument and would like to perform with us, then please raise your voice and, together, we will make a big plan. LET’S DO THIS.
