Glass Vaults – 'Gold Star' Sunday 30 October, 2011
I was blown away by Glass Vaults debut EP when it made its way online last June. They sounded like seasoned pros from the very beginning. Glass Vaults may appeal to Sigur Ros fans but are far more ambient and in my opinion, reach emotional peaks without overstating themselves. Tomorrow indie label JUKBOXR will release Glass Vaults new EP ‘Into Clear’ featuring the beautiful tune ‘Gold Star’.
Glass Vaults are based in Wellington, New Zealand. Despite their expansive sound they are a duo (Richard Larsen and Rowan Pierce). The pair manage to back this up on stage, using a combination of live drums and samples, guitar, synths and plenty of creative looping. Kiwi’s can catch Glass Vaults live at the ‘Into Clear’ launch (The Matterhorn, Wellington on November 5).
