Description:

Hailing from rural Northwest Pennsylvania, Heron plies a particularly entrancing brand of instrumental rock that teems with life even in its most bittersweet moments. You Are Here Now is the title of their debut album, and while that declaration may seem to address the listener. o build on the theme of nature invoked by their namesake, You Are Here Now is reminiscent of the first week of Spring. It is built carefully on placid refrains, but eventually blossoms forth with instances of breathtaking beauty, stunning bursts of life that drive memories of the cold to the back of one’s mind. It could be classified as conventional contemporary post-rock, but it thrives on intangibles, a clear chemistry between band members that lends more power to their compositions. This is an album where every note, every drum flourish, the wide open spaces the band allows for in which to build their melodies, they all land just as they should — everything in its right place.

Description:

Fuzzy, melodic indie-pop from a group led by Bevan Smith, who used to make gorgeous ambient techno as Signer.

“If you want to know the secret to happiness, look no further than transcendental psychedelic pop outfit Glass Vaults. The New Zealand via Berlin band led by Richard Larsen, Rowan Pierce and Carpark Record’s signee Bevan Smith, create a unique concoction of joyously uplifting pleasure in their sonic laboratory and The New Happy is the result – an exploration of the euphoric sensations associated with Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR).

Glass Vaults’ sophomore LP was recorded and mixed to seduce. ASMR, otherwise known as a ‘brain orgasm,’ is an aurally triggered euphoric experience characterised by a tingling in the scalp which travels down the neck and spine and The New Happy was specifically mixed to elicit an ASMR effect. ‘We focused on retaining short high frequency transients and worked on modulating and panning certain sounds to induce goose bumps and shivers when listened through headphones,’ Smith explains of the record’s atmospheric ambiance. ‘It looks not to emulate a sexual high, but a deeper, euphoric wave, that washes over the body in feelings of comfort and security… a new kind of happy.’

The New Happy sees the band peeling away at a once hazy veneer to reveal vibrant and colourful majestic pop moments crafted with precision and clarity. ‘The New Happy is a sonic departure for us… where once we would have relied on large crystalline reverbs, this record takes cues from intimate spaces, percussive rhythm and groove to elicit a different kind of transcendence.’ Glass Vaults’ unique brand of dreamy psychedelic pop has wowed capacity crowds everywhere from drained swimming pools and humid forests, to New Zealand, Australia, and the U.S.A.”
