“Pheasant of Furs”
by tom johnson
We helped to kick-start the latest LP from Gláss way back in February, when we shared the brilliantly sprawling six-minutes of “You’re Not Real“, and we’re very pleased to loop the trio back in, post album release, with the unveiling of their brand new video for “Pheasant Of Furs” today.
Somewhat menacing in its demeanour, the new track is a convergence of thrillingly brash guitar spikes and moody vocals, that rumbles on for four decidedly dark minutes; a psych-pop gem in hibernation, just waiting for these darker days. The video is equally moody, the band playing in near-darkness, simply back-lit by a dull orange glow that was the brain-child of frontman Aaron Burke who intended to bring the album art to life or perhaps depict, as the label puts it, “a writhing lounge singer trapped in a shadowy Lynchian purgatory of post-punk fire and ice.” Makes sense to us.
