WOW & FLUTTER EP
Hide & Seek Records - 2 February 2018 -FEBRUARY TOUR
GLASS MOUNTAIN make beautifully cinematic and passionate music filled with yearning and sorrow. Taking their name from a David Hockney artwork, the quartet’s sound is drenched in visual allusion, marrying the size and the scope of Sigur Ros or The Cure to something more delicate and personal.
Reminiscent of the spirit of hip-hop where anything can – and should – be included, GLASS MOUNTAIN draw influences from alt-rock, dream pop, post-rock, electronica and the theramin-tinged orchestral swells and surges of The Beach Boys. These songs are deeply personal with moments of heartfelt honesty; tear-soaked laments to coping with life in a turbulent and often confusing world.
Following their acclaimed debut GLACIAL EP, GLASS MOUNTAIN release their anticipated follow up, the WOW & FLUTTER EP, on 2 February 2018 with Hide & Seek Records. The EP will be available on both CD and digital, and in two limited edition formats as follows:
WOW & FLUTTER EP | Red or pink vinyl – includes two-sided art print; lyrics; CD copy of the EP; and download code.
WOW & FLUTTER EP | Super Deluxe Box Set – includes the EP on either translucent red or robot pink vinyl; CD copy of the EP; download code; issue 2 of Ghosts zine; 50ml Gin Flows Through My Veins bottle; hand written lyric sheet; art print; and Gin and Tonic recipe.
GLASS MOUNTAIN have unveiled the astonishing video for GIN FLOWS THROUGH MY VEINS. The video was made by the expert hands of long-time video collaborators Sodium, who completely left the band out of the creative process, delivering the finished product the night before it went live. To say the band clearly had faith is an understatement. And that faith, equally clearly, has been justified
It is a testament to their songwriting ability that they are such a difficult band to categorise, capable of injecting Sigur Ros beauty with a dose of the industrial north, or equally comfortable making slacker rock dramatic and enchanting.
While their set lists can be broad, all their songs share a cinematic widescreen sound with front man Harry Hanson’s alluring vocals drawing the listener further into the band’s fascinating universe, none more so than on GIN FLOWS THROUGH MY VEINS. Harry describes the single as reflective of losing that special connection with something powerful and all-encompassing; yearning for that feeling to come back; and having to deal with the fact that it probably never will.
