Glass Face is a pop band based out of London, Ontario. The band consists of Amelia Fraser on vocals, Dylan King on synth, Cole Sefton on guitar, and Rowan Grice on drums. During the summer, the band reached great audiences through their cover of Drake’s Hotline Bling featured on Spotify playlists and their original track Holland featured on MTV’s Teen Wolf. The band digitally released their debut album, an EP, entitled You are Nowhere on December 16, 2015 via iTunes. Furthermore, the physical album will be made available on January 22, 2016. The album features six tracks including their debut single Holland.
When initially listening to the record, I had difficulty getting ‘into it’ as it was slower in tempo than I had anticipated. However, after giving it a few listens, it grew onto me. Although not the most memorable release of the year for me, it was enjoyable to listen to. The EP has a dream-like ambiance to it. The most memorable aspect of You are Nowhere is the vocal/instrumental combination. The most prominent tracks that I continued repeating were Holland and Roses. Yet, Underkept I and Underkept 2 again captivated the dream-like nature, vocal, and instrumentals that made the album stand out from other releases that I have been listening to.
If you are looking for more upbeat albums to listen to, I would suggest looking elsewhere. However, if you enjoy slower songs that have a different ‘flare’ from mainstream pop music, I would definitely check out You are Nowhere from Glass Face.
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
