HAVE TO LIE VIDEO

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.

Since their uncompromising seven-minute debut release GLACIAL, Bradford quartet GLASS MOUNTAIN have built their growing reputation on beautifully crafted, often sorrowful music. Named after a David Hockney artwork, the band released GIN FLOWS THROUGH MY VEINS in November last year, followed by the WOW & FLUTTER EP earlier this year. From this EP comes HAVE TO LIE. The EP’s closing track is musically stripped bare, with the exposed and vulnerable lead vocal taking centre stage until orchestral drums, cellos and theremins take us to a huge dynamic moment of sorrow and desperation. The song deals with how we often pretend we’re OK even when we’re most certainly not. 

 

Speaking about the inspiration behind the song, singer and lyricist Harry Hanson said: "It’s easy to think that you can just push bad thoughts to the back of your head, bottling them up. I am really bad for it as are many other people. Inevitably the bad thoughts will all come back and hit like a wave. It’s better to just get the thoughts out, speak to friends, anyone that will listen. You’re not a burden to anyone if you want to tell them what's going on in your head. I’ve only recently learned that.”

 

 

Following their recent sold-out DIY all-dayer, Lazy Sunday Afternoon, GLASS MOUNTAIN has now announced a handful of select live dates this autumn, including a headline Leeds performance and a special intimate performance with Gengahr in November.
