The best part of Houston’s ever growing music scene is the expanding mixture of genres that make this city so intriguing. I would think that few of you would have heard of Glass The Sky, but it seems that this year all of that will change. With a new album produced by Josh Applebee at SugarHill due out on April 1 and a sound that’s as engaging as it is different, they could easily become your next favorite band. Mixing elements of indie rock, orchestral pop and alterna rock, the five-piece is on the verge of bringing their engaging and catchy sound to all with their debut. Free Press Houston was more than happy to debut the track “Feared Wishes,” found exclusively here, from their debut album that showcases just how different they are while keeping your interest from start to finish.
Starting with a chambered sounding vocal track, the band comes in together on the song with a thunderous clamoring before dropping down to a softer side. Mixing their core elements together to create a sound that’s intriguing, different, yet subtly reminiscent of seventies rock and eighties falsetto pop, Glass The Sky is definitely doing their own thing here by offering up a sound that’s hard to deny but difficult to place into any one genre. The masterful use of vocal harmony and instrumental melody on this song only makes you yearn for what will be on their album when it drops on April 1.
Glass The Sky is nothing like any other Houston band and that seems to suit them just fine. While you get down to the different qualities the band possesses here, you can grab your own copy of LP1 on Saturday April 1 when the band performs at their album release party at White Oak Music Hall upstairs. The all ages show that features performances from A Sundae Drive, The Wheel Workers, and Ex-Optimists with doors at 8 pm and a $7 cover.
