Sometimes, very rarely, I find I have no idea how I first came across a certain band. It’s like they just appeared as if they’d always been there, assuming a place in my life with no introduction. Glacier Veins are one such occurrence, becoming familiar to me at some unknown point during the cycle of last year’s EP Clear Your Head. Of course, the question here is how rather than why this situation occurred, as one listen to their self-described ‘dream punk’ reveals my obvious attraction to the band.
Latest video Headspace Campout does nothing but reinforce this, the visual’s lo-fi aesthetic reflecting the song’s gorgeously soothing melody while the vocals add a depth of emotion, lyrics of pining for a loved one who’s far away. The overriding sense here though is one of optimism – there’s a joy in having someone to miss, and in the meantime being connected through dreams of one another. Having recently signed to Common Ground Records, the band will be releasing new EP Dreamspace through that label on October 6th.
