We’re very, very late to the party on this one and for that we apologise but we simply can’t let this single go by without mentioning it. London based alt/shoegaze quartet ‘Glass Horses’ have unleashed a stunning brand new single entitled ‘Stepping Stones’ via their bandcamp page and it follows briskly on from their recently released self-titled debut EP. The band are made up of Noga Shatz – vocals, Terry Hale – guitar/keyboards, Pat Paxton – bass, James Walker – drums and ‘Stepping Stones’ is available to buy/download right now from glasshorsesband.bandcamp.com with the ‘Glass Horses’ EP is available to listen to in full over on the bands Soundcloud page.
‘Stepping Stones’ shimmies into the ether in a torrent of atmospheric reverberation as mesmerising guitar progressions meld with its snaking lead lines and another impressive vocal performance courtesy of Noga Shatz. Sparse percussion and cascading bass frequencies add weight to the piece as the collectively blissful chorus progressions arc and swoon leading us into a sublime closing segment that builds and builds and builds. Their collective sound skips through passages of mesmerising psych, shimmering shoegaze and blissed out dreamy alt-rock with relative ease making Glass Horses one of the most exciting bands on the underground scene right now.
