Delivering a thunderous twist of punk/noise with hints of ambient and post-rock elements, Gláss are lead by Aaron Burke (vocals/guitar) with bassist Ary Davani and drummer Sam Goldsmith rounding out the Athens-based trio. After extensive touring in support of their 2014 self-released EP Foreign Bastard, the band relocated to Athens, Georgia to begin work on a follow-up record. Production for their full-length debut began shortly thereafter at the Jam Room Recording Studio in Columbia, South Carolina.
Burke chronicles the impetus for Accent and its lead single “Glass(-accent)” last October to Transverso Media:
“The song is a feeling of being exposed. Being in an environment where you can’t control but act unnaturally. A place that is definitely more temperate than you are used to, and you had been so used to a place that is so much more comfortably chilling, and you had become so accustomed to getting used to it, that it I felt so naked not having to wrap up in warm clothing, that I just refused to. To the point where I was wearing tight jeans and a duffle coat in 100 degree weather. That was America to me. No friends, no local knowledge to back me up. No stories or experience to refer to. I felt transplanted from everything I knew when I moved to the states. I can’t help but write about that—my immediate emotions of living in the states. That pretty much sums up the topic of the record.”
