Glasir is a project from Dallas, Texas that consists of longtime collaborators and enigmatic sonic seekers Nate Ferguson on bass, Conner McKibbin on guitar and Austin Vanbebber on drums. Together they have crafted a heavy siege cannon, one that draws in post-rock, ambient doom and psychedelic rock and is masterfully loaded with enough black blasting powder to fire relentlessly at all levels.
Glasir formed in 2014 and released two demos that same year – the first simply titled “Demo” and “Sickening Joy”.
In 2015, Glasir went into the studio with Sam Hunt for three days and recorded the EP “Unborn” which was digitally released on 10 May, 2015. That summer the band toured the East and West Coast and became Elusive Sound’s first signing. “Unborn” was met with rave reviews and included in Post-Rock Essentials Best Releases of 2015.
In January 2016, Glasir went on tour with their good friends Auric and started working on their first album. In May they set off on a tour of the Northwest. “Unborn” was released on vinyl on 8 July, 2016. The band is currently finishing their first album.
Glasir has bestowed upon us in “Unborn” the first of hopefully many golden leaves to come. Check it out and revel in its commanding, devastating glory.
Il est parfois de petits disques qui font de très gros effets. Du haut de ses trois pièces, « Unborn », premier EP du trio texan Glasir, m’a ainsi retourné les tympans. Un petit disque réussi et ébouriffant à souhait. A écouter volume à fond.
The songs on Unborn display the band’s ability to create nuanced and textured tracks with incredible dynamic range. Can’t wait to hear this record on vinyl!
An EP consisiting of „only“ three Tracks with a running time of 23 minutes has easily made it‘s way into our Best Of lists
“Unborn” hits hard on both the ears and the heart, blending sincerity, musical expertise and intelligence.
There is literally nothing about this EP that I don’t like. The production is fantastic!
Unborn conjures a bleak and lonely existence, when one loses his heart and falls prey to the recklessness of despair, peers deep into the darkness and dares to dream dreams that no mortal should ever dream.
