Bristol based five-piece Glass Violet have released their euphoric yet dark single ‘Hourglass’.
The track is not your typical indie release, it has mysterious cryptic edge. Yes, its catchy and yes, it’s definitely danceable but it is much more than that. There is a furiously fast-paced element to it which alludes a darker aura. The lyricism explores that very theme with a focus on questioning life after death.
As aforementioned, ‘Hourglass’ is without a doubt a memorable track, you will have it playing on repeat in no time. There are occasional moments where it musically seems a bit untidy but that does not take away from the single. Glass Violet have perfectly combined the upbeat indie element with the eerier elements of rock.
