/ BROKEN GLASS RECORDS / SOUNDS GOOD /
Productivity is a wonderful thing. After releasing third album Under Northern Skies last year, Swedish singer-songwriter The Glass Child returns with ‘White Spaces’, the first taste of material for 2017 which will be followed by an upcoming EP in Spring. This proves two things about The Glass Child: 1. She, Charlotte Eriksson has a lot to say and 2. She is no slouch.
‘White Spaces’ is a beautifully crafted track with an instrumental dazzled with plucks of acoustic strings and filled with pulses of piano chords and bass drum goodness. Charlotte’s vocals swoon upon the music effortlessly with a voice tinged in pain, and armed with lyrics that stick in the head as well as the heart. Huge atmospheres are created as instruments soar into the air with an ambitious rush of anthemic beauty to mark the track’s closing moments as a wondrous finale that leaves an astonished impression on the eardrums. It’s wonderful.
The Glass Child have got themselves a lovely little tune with ‘White Spaces’. With three albums already available it’ll be interesting to hear what else Charlotte’s got to say with this upcoming EP, but whatever it may be, it’ll certainly be beautiful.
