Your single “Creatures” just hit 20,000 streams on Spotify. What was it like to reach that milestone?
It’s pretty surreal; it’s like nothing we’ve experienced before. The song has actually rose to about 50,000 streams at this point. We are excited that it’s getting the attention it deserves. We feel that this song has a lot to offer listeners, and we hope that listeners find that we have much more to share in our upcoming EP.
You also recently released a second single titled “Polaris.” How do the two singles compare?
“Polaris” and “Creatures” have some pretty significant differences. That is ultimately why we chose to release these two songs as singles. “Polaris” is much darker -- lyrically and musically. It’s less nostalgic and introspective than “Creatures.” Polaris communicates a lot of different themes, which was our attempt to tie all of the songs on the new record together. “Creatures” is simpler in nature, and it reflects our “roots” as an indie/alt band.
Will there be an upcoming EP to follow the singles?
Yes, our sophmore EP, ‘Midnight Appetite,’ is set to release on October 27th. We will be doing a Southeast US tour in support of the record through November.
You have been touring quite a bit recently. What is the touring experience like for the band?
We’ve always considered live shows to be our bread and butter. So touring has been incredible for us. We’ve connected with so many more fans, and we’ve begun to consider the road our second home.
What has been your favorite show so far of 2017?
That’s a pretty tough question… I would have to say that our first headliners in Chicago and Manhattan were probably our favorites.
How was Glass House Point’s sound created?
We actually started off as a folk-rock band. So a lot of our song structure is rooted in that facet of American music. This is also why a lot of our first record, ‘ Love Lives in Dark Places,’ had an acoustic feel. As the band started gaining ground, we seperated with our violin player, Noah Feldman, in late 2016. This change ultimately pushed us in a new direction: one that focused primarily on heavily effect-driven electric guitars and synthscaping.
What is the band’s ultimate goal for 2018?
I think our ultimate goal is to spread our new EP as far and wide as it can go. We’ve put an incredible amount of time and attention into these new songs. We’d like ‘Midnight Appetite’ to do the talking for us; we’d like it convey that we are in this for the long haul.
