Tomorrow, (18/06/16) GLASS headline Union Chapel’s Daylight Music event. The first time I saw this upcoming electronic-duo was at Flyte’s Chasing Heaven Club Night. To be quite honest, the ‘Gig Of The Week’ very quickly became: ‘Gig of the Month’, as nothing has since compared to that magical night. The effervescence of Frontwoman, Jessica Winter can only be paralleled to the legend that is Kate Bush, singing and synth playing with such dark theatricality alongside partner, Scott Remington, who in turn, mirrors Jessica’s melodramatic chemistry through guitar and synthesiser. An idiosyncratic sound they describe as “CRANCE; cry and dance” transcends from the record-to-live impeccably.
The chapel setting will inevitably pave way for an echoey, ethereal performance, only to be accentuated by the use of a church organ, I think you too can only imagine how enchanting tomorrow will be…I hope you can join us!
The accompanying support artists; Mathew Bourne and Darren Morris are two artists that I anticipate will be provide a beguiling filmic soundscape, bare of vocals, eerie, bordering on the melodramatic, painting a dark atmosphere suitably matched to that of their headliner counterparts; Glass.
Mathew Bourne’s multi-instrumental jazz compositions are created through analogue synthesisers, tape delays, piano and cello’s ranging from the unpredictable piano melodies to the delicate orchestral scores across to the electronic experimentalism.
Darren Morris a composer and collaborator, currently playing keys for Steve Mason (Beta Band) ranges from the quiet sombreness of dreamy organ chords to the quasi-psychedelic electronic sonic wall.
