With their new EP “L.U.C.A”, Glass can be considered as architects. Their music is heavily conceptualized and meticulously designed. Once procuded, this alternative electronic music sounds natural, immersive and singular.
Starting with their eponym track “L.U.C.A” , they navigate through chemical sound design to faultless glitchy drums’ sounds. A challenging musical combination that morphs into an epic, yet sophisticated melodic ending.
“I miss the black” uses the same beat tools with dark organic — numeric marimba sounds. A powerful texture work that could reveal itself as a signature song during their live/dj performances.
On a different note “Trinity End” is a very cinematic and atmospheric track with a trippy SD & FX work.
Blending aliasing stretched sounds and soft synth pads which plunge the listener into his own mind.
Echoing to the previous track, “Infinity End (feat. Greg Ashley)” is a beatless dark piece. It combines spoken word with pitch shifting effects and humming metallic like textures. The song feels like a massive long drop into the deep heart of an intricate data system.
Glass is experimenting with nowadays tools and can be considered as close to the UK experimental club’s scene (UIQ, Hyperdub, Modern Love and co).
However, they are developing their own sound and production methods, providing a very sensitive modern music.
