Shoe-gazers rejoice because this Monday night Glass House, All Talk, Muddler, and Peace Prize are bringing the distortion pedals and lack of eye contact to Great Scott. Glass House released an EP entitled Summer’s Shot this past November, half of which was recorded at Converse Rubber Track’s studios. Before they bring 90’s influenced indie rock to our neighborhood, Nick of Glass House was kind enough to answer a few questions about their recording process and future plans.
Allston Pudding: When writing the EP, what were your musical influences?
Nick Romanow (guitar / vocals): Some of our biggest influences are the ‘classic’ indie bands: Pavement, Built to Spill, My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr. But we all listen to a lot of different stuff and our music probably reflects all of that to some degree, while also hopefully reflecting our own approach to playing and writing. When we were writing and recording the songs on the EP some reference points were Ovlov, The Beatles, Gin Blossoms, and Ride.
AP: How long have you been playing together as a band?
NR: We’ve been a band for a little over a year. Matt joined us at the end of summer ’16 though.
AP: How did you meet?
NR: Javier and I met via Craigslist. We met Jon and our original bassist Marc online shortly after that. When we needed a new bassist we went back to Craigslist and found Matt! We started as strangers and now we’re best friends.
AP: What are your future plans as a band?
NR: Our musical plans for 2017 are lots more shows, perhaps an East Coast mini tour, and definitely more recording. We’re proud of the fact that we all write so we have lots of material that we’re excited to play and share.
Tickets are $8 and the show starts at 9 PM, 18+.
