Glass Peaks - 'Asbestos'
Someone sound the ‘it’s a banger’ klaxon, because London-based trio Glass Peaks have blessed us with another dose of shimmering, dark, indie.
Written about perspective of realising that your relationship isn’t as perfect as you may wish it to be, bassist/vocalist Alfie Jeffries says of their new song Asbestos: “it’s about the harsh realities or ‘fragile truths’ of being so deeply invested in someone but losing the fire or spark that brought you together”. There’s an ethereal quality in the simple build-up of guitars that create an airy atmosphere for the lyrics to truly hit home – “I’m in love with everyone I meet / I guess you’re rendered obsolete / I think I might need to leave.” ‘Asbestos’ follows on from the pensive vibe of ‘Traffic’ and the brooding swagger of ‘Misery’. With three solid releases under their belt in 2019 alone, it’s safe to say that Glass Peaks are honing in on their sound, and digging a little deeper into themselves.
‘Asbestos’ is Glass Peaks’ debut release on These Bloody Thieves Records, and will headline London’s St Pancras Old Church on Friday 31st January 2020.
