Ralph's played Halifax based Glass Harbours on his Radio KC Indie Show recently so it was about time he introduced their self-financed EP release History Trails via the blog.
Drawing on influences like Shellac and Slint they've created two stylish Math Rocky instrumentals which will be available for download on May 5th.
The re-named Glass Harbours had reformed in 2014 after a ten year hiatus from their previous incarnation as Herrod to no small amount of critical acclaim and have featured on Simon Raymonde's Amazing Radio Show and Under The Radar.
Glass Harbours consider this to be their best work to date and Ralph's inclined to agree with them. They describe the EP's lead track Falling/Horizons as featuring - "Paranoid guitars and epic rock riffs with a stunning Post-Rock coda." Very much in the style of an early Wishbone Ash around the time of Pilgrimage in the early 70's.
Should Glass Harbours continue to showcase such impeccable musicality then future releases can be looked forward to especially if you're a fan of guitar based melodic Indie.
Glass Harbours are...
Richard Westwood - guitar/bass/keys
James Whipp - guitar/bass
Pete Bush - drums/guitar/bass/keyboards.
