“… 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.
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:
Sun 23 September – LEEDS Brudenell Social Club | with Red Kite
Friday 9 November – LEEDS Hyde Park Book Club | with Gengahr
