Gláss – “Glass(-accent)” (Stereogum Premiere)

The frigid post-punk of Gláss casts a black, cold, spectral shadow. The trio from Athens, Georgia are putting out an LP early next year, and “Glass(-accent)” is the first track they’ve shared from the release. It has the kind of clamoring guitars and nimble groove of early 80s post-punk bands like Josef K, but with a much more downtrodden tone. Against a combination of jagged guitars, doomy bass lines, and darting percussion, Aáron Burke speak-sings, “I can’t see my face in front of the glass/ And I’ll go where I’m not so cold/ And it’ll be the death of me.” His chilly, unaffected delivery is spine-tingling. Listen below.
