The enigmatic Melbourne-based Glass Beams radiates a psychedelia rendered with cyclical riffs and dizzying melodies.
Mirage, the artist’s debut release, showcases an inclination for cosmic instrumentation, eastern scales and kraut pervaded polyrhythms, issuing four compositions that lend from a profusion of sounds and influences.
“My father was born in India and moved here when he was 17,” Glass Beams explains, “and in searching for new energy and inspiration to write music, I dug around for music from my father’s hometown and surrounding areas. I found a wealth of Indian classical, disco and pop music that formed the building blocks for this record. As soon as I had that vision of what I wanted to write and why I wanted to write it, the songs just flowed out really.”
