glass cases brings a whole new energy to the pop / synth-rock genre. the acrobatic vocals of bassist Alex Van Keulen are paired with the spoken word stylings of Austin Seifert, bouncing between ukulele and piano, giving the group an attention-grabbing sound underpinned by the dynamic rhythms of drummer Cameron Greene.
the trio has been making their presence heard in their native state of Colorado, including winning the popular vote to play taste of Fort Collins music festival 2020, and gaining significant features and radio play from Colorado public radio’s indie 102.3, USAFA’s 97.7 KAFA, 103.9 RXP, 93.3 KTCL, and 94.3 the X. they continue to assertively expand their listening base through a friendly and confident grassroots campaign, both in person and on social media.
on the surface, the group's latest single "chemicals" is upbeat and makes for easy listening. a deeper lyrical dive uncovers themes of inner conflict and mental health, tied together by Christian undertones. the internal conflict is made strikingly apparent in the track's accompanying music video, set at an abandoned gas station somewhere in Colorado.
these songs are a result of struggle. they are written, both lyrically and musically, with the intent of giving listeners hope, solidarity and strength in the things they are facing.
