In the beginning of December I got introduced to this four-piece band from Kent who seem to be taking the alt-pop world by storm, so it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t tell you all about their new single that came out yesterday!
The Glass Peaks boys Lewis (vocals, guitar, synths), Jake (guitar), Grant (drums) and Alfie (bass) haven’t been a band that long yet, even when I saw them last month the concert was practically sold out and everyone in there except for me seemed to know all the lyrics to all the songs. So I believe it’s safe to say that they are making a name for themselves.
If you ask them who their influences have been when creating their music they’ll mention people like Joy Division and The Smiths, Ben Howard, Foals, The Maccabees and White Lies. But even thought they have high influence from these great artists they are working hard on making their own sound stick out putting their niche touch on an already popular sound.
Their new single is called ‘Speak and Spell’ and was produced by Kristofer Harris who has worked with artists like Bear’s Den, Clock Opera, Smoke Fairies. I won’t go in to much detail about the song since I strongly believe that music should be heard, not described by words.
But I will now stop stalling you and taking up your time and let you enjoy the incredible new single by Glass Peaks, ‘Speak and Spell’.
If you like what you’ve just heard Glass Peaks is supporting Independent Venue Week and playing at The Rocksteady (Dalston) TONIGHT! Come by and say hello, I myself will definitely be there enjoying some good company and great music.
