Ethereal, visceral, cinematic, and a whole other host of brooding synonyms are how best to describe the Bradford post-punk quartet Glass Mountain. In their arsenal lies their debut EP Glacial, an amalgamation of brave, angst-ridden and mesmerising tracks that all seem like they’d fit brilliantly into the end scene of an arty film.
With debut single ‘Glacial’ stretching to just under 7 minutes, Glass Mountain are a self-affirmed bunch. Branding their music as ‘YEARN/SORROW’, the band have a spirited direction, and their feet firmly on the ground with a heart-wrenchingly intimate sound.
Lyrically introspective, and musically acerbic, Glass Mountain are a band that soar with powerfully delicate ballads.
