London band Glass, aka vocalist Jessica Winter and instrumentalist Scott Rimington, just released their latest single ‘Vulnerable’, an essential after-dark anthem with dramatic hooks and a lustrous aesthetic, produced by Dan Grech whose credits include Lana Del Rey and Halsey among others. Complementing ‘Vulnerable’ is a far-eastern themed music video. Directed by lead singer Jessica Winter alongside London film company Mint & Lime Films,the video blends totalitarian aesthetics – inspired by George Orwell’ s dystopian novel, 1984– with a Japanese and North Korean karaoke style video. Striking a personal chord with the band, it was Jessica’ s own fascination with obscure far eastern pop culture and propaganda films that led to this painstakingly detailed, authentic and kitsch karaoke lyric video. Released on the recently launched London label & management company Supernatural Recordings this February, ‘Vulnerable’ comes hard on the heels of a busy 2016 that has seen the band work with everyone from Formation, Fat White Family, and SWEAT, and support the likes of Strong Asian Mothers and Screaming Peaches.
New single ‘Vulnerable’ takes the visceral energy of the live performance and adds a grandiose electronic palette. Glass Co-writer Scott R is an enigmatic guitar obsessive who brings a classical musicality and structure to Winter’s lyrical post-punk diatribe. The song Itself is an eccentric alt pop after dark anthem; a rallying cry for those familiar with the paranoia of the 4AM walk home: “Woooooaah she’s vulnerable , she should be ashamed”.
