To celebrate the release of OurGlassZoo’s debut full length album, Aftermath, the Vancouver-based band curated a brand new exclusive Spotify playlist featuring songs that inspired the album. Stream it below.
Reignwolf – “Over & Over”
This indie band from Seattle does a great job of bridging electronic with rock. There is a bit of NIN in there but it still feels fresh.
The Temper Trap – “Sweet Disposition”
The melodic guitar could draw comparison to our single “Here” along with the catchy vocal lines that make you want to head on a road trip.
Nothing But Thieves – “Particles”
Conor Mason’s melodies (vocalist of NBT) feel like a fresh blend of Tom Yorke and Matt Bellamy, lead singers of two bands we all adore.
Death from Above 1979 – “Trainwreck 1979”
A great band from Toronto with a dance punk influence.
Adrian Glynn – “Tear this sucker down”
This song by our friend Adrian Glynn (vocalist of Juno award nominated band ‘The Fugitives’) inspired Josias (lead vocals) to write “Collide” about his father’s battle with cancer. The rawness and Hannah Epperson’s magic on cello was a big inspiration.
Half Moon Run – “Full Circle”
The simplicity of this song is what makes it special and brings out the poetry.
Young The Giant – “Something to Believe in”
The energy of this song along with killer lyrics make this song an instant winner.
LCD Soundsystem – “Oh Baby”
We collaborated with Indonesian – Canadian electronic producer O.K.A on this album and this song was a bit of an inspiration when first working on our song “Reminisce.”
XL The Band – “The Island”
Prevail (‘Swollen Members’ & ‘XL The Band’) collaborated with us on our single “Free.” We used a brass section just like in this track and it added a lot to the overall feel of the album.
Blonde Diamond – “Better When You are close”
Another great local Canadian band that bridges different genres into one, which was something we heavily explored on Aftermath.
