With an emphasis on droning atmospheres, harmony, and post-punk propulsion, Glass Traps deliver their debut, self-titled LP on February 23. The record is lush with sonic grit, and aptly grounded in the a rust belt city with a musically rich history, Cleveland, Ohio.
Twin guitars dogfight amidst an abundance of modulators, combined with the haunting voice of Sarah Paul, who is seemingly inhabited with bits of Siouxisie and Ian Curtis’ conflicted spirits. Not to be undersold is a tightly locked-in rhythm section.
Also of note, Lamont “Bim” Thomas of Obnox provides a noteable guest appearance on “Freight Elevator.”
Ghettoblaster has the pleasure of offering the U.S. premiere of this stream in advance of their LP release show at Now That’s Class on February 23.
