Releasing their debut album, Vivien Glass are surging forward into 2013, with the album ‘Awake, My Sleeper’.
Born in 2010, Vivien Glass is made up of New Yorker Melissa Glass and South African Jan-Michael. The music is an intertwining of the masculine and the feminine, via a robotic, 80s electronic sound, with an undercurrent of haunting Industrial music.
Inspired by artists like Depeche Mode and Kate Bush, Vivien Glass have taken the essence of elegant electronic 80s music and married it with their own melodic, yet tough style, for a dynamic 2013 sound. The band’s effortless style seeps through into all aspects of their creativity. Whether it be their direction of their own romantic, film noir tinged music video for lead single ‘Julius’, or their exciting live performances, complete with; strobes, smoke machines and dramatic stage costumes.
This is an album of progressive electronic pop music. All of the tracks brim with melody and harmony, exuding emotion as the listener is whisked through a journey of synth driven electronic music, with an aggressive twist. Think Bladerunner soundtrack, come Gary Numan and then fuse on a beefy 909 kick, to pulse away underneath, insuring dancefloor friendliness.
With a string of live London gigs coming up for 2013, Vivien Glass will be gracing trendy venues such as 333 Motherbar, with their emotive electronic pop music.
Definitely an act to watch for 2013.
