Paranoia. Unrest. Unemployment. Society on the edge of ruin.
The state against the individual. Sounds like eighties, doesn’t
it? But it’s now.
That’s why Hull-based City of Glass are a relevant, exciting new
voice that must be heard. Driven by an eighties-nostalgic synth
engine, all rippling arpeggios and robotic interjections,
interwoven with wiry and insolent guitars, and underpinned by
bass and drums that are simultaneously danceable and threatening
– this is music that has been waiting to happen. And let’s not
forget the songs – they’ve got more hooks than a fishing tackle
shop, but these are intelligent observations that talk about
what it’s like here, now. Singer Deeaay sounds like he’s been there,
come back and now he’s going to make you listen, by force if
necessary. Remember social commentary you can dance to?
City of Glass have eaten it up and spat it back at us. We need this.
