Glass Beams

After stand out festival performances and a string of sold out theatres with UK band ‘Jungle’, Glass Beams will radiate their unique brand of serpentine jazz & psychedelia at two intimate shows in Castlemaine & Torquay.

With an inclination for cosmic instrumentation, eastern scales and kraut pervaded polyrhythms, Glass Beams will perform songs from their lauded ‘Mirage’ EP, as well as many unreleased compositions that lend from a profusion of sounds and influences.

“My father was born and raised in India, and in searching for new energy and inspiration to write music, I dug around for music from my father’s hometown. I found a wealth of 70’s era Indian classical, disco and pop music that formed the inspirational building blocks for this record. As soon as I had that vision of what I wanted to write and why I wanted to write it, the songs just flowed out” – Glass Beams

Upon release, Glass Beams debut record ‘Mirage’ oozed onto the turntables of Gilles  Peterson, The Gaslamp Killer, Trevor Jackson, NTS & Rhythm Section DJ’s and featured on BBC6’s ‘Fantastic Beats’ segment. This support culminated in the standout track ‘Taurus’ being included on the Grammy nominated Jayda G’s lauded ‘DJ Kicks’ release, with NME proclaiming Glass Beams as ‘An Essential Emerging Artist’ for 2022.
