Having been founded by close friends Lewis (vocals, guitar, synths), Jake (guitar) and Grant (drums) just a few short months ago, GLASS PEAKS are quickly earning themselves a reputation as one of the South-east’s hottest new talents.
With the recent addition of Alfie on bass, the four peice from Kent dive into the realm of self-proclaimed ‘melancholic alt-pop’, derived from influences such as Joy Division and The Smiths and resonating the sound of contemporaries like Ben Howard, Foals, The Maccabees and White Lies. Sonically the group pen beautifully unpredictable and dynamic songs – Lewis’ evocative lyrics are consumed by waves of moody, syncopated guitar licks, progressively erupting to a serendipitous full-scale wall-of-sound induced by pounding drums and driving bass lines.
Although their influences are clearly defined, it’s evident GLASS PEAKS are determined to stamp their own mark on the scene. The music is an earnest marriage between raw, energetic passion and methodical, thought provoking articulation. As the band become increasingly revered for their powerful live show, it’s easy to hear and see why so many people are already captivated by their sound.
