Glass Peaks, the four-piece band from Kent, formed just over a year ago and have quickly been earning themselves a reputation. They describe their sounds as ‘melancholic alt-pop’, taking inspiration from artists such as Joy Division and The Smiths, as well as the resonating sound of contemporary artists such as Ben Howard, White Lies and The Maccabees.
Despite their influences being clearly defined, it’s obvious Glass Peaks want to stamp their own mark in music. With Lewis’s ‘beautifully unpredictable’ songwriting merging and captivating the pounding drums, driving bass and syncopated guitar licks into the music which has been described as “a stroke of genius” by ‘It’s All Indie’, Glass Peaks have also been acknowledged by ‘Louderthanwar’ saying they could “quite easily go on to be one of 2017’s break out bands”.
The new Glass Peaks’ single ‘Speak and Spell’ now, which was dropped on Phil Taggart’s BBC Radio 1 show on the 17th of January, has also featured on ‘BBC Introducing in Kent’ and ‘Absolute Radio’.
