On this edition of new music Monday, I present the Denver band Glass Delirium. I first saw them February of 2013 in Colorado Springs and from the get-go enjoyed what I heard. There’s always something to be said about chicks in rock and this band has two lovely ladies and they absolutely KILL it.  Michelle has a set of pipes that are unbelievable and Aeon makes playing bass look easy and hot (assuming you’re into gals who can rock the hell out of their instrument). Then you bring in Scott who is one of the most talented guitarists I know (and I know a lot of them) and his long, luscious locks and you’re hooked. Just when you think you can’t be hooked any harder, you realize this band isn’t just guitars, drums, and killer vocals, but also incorporates a keyboard which gives it an edge and makes every song stand out even more. I’m not sure where their influences lie, but there are some tidbits that remind me personally a little bit of Lacuna Coil, another band I love, so that’s cool for me!

From their Facebook bio: “A ‘make you want to headbang while your feet do the jitterbug’ type of band …. Since conception, Glass Delirium has been exploring the depths of what it means to create. They are a progressive alternative rock band with roots in classical, jazz, pop, metal, and soundtracks. Vocalist Michelle leads this dynamic group with a diverse edge, teeter-tottering between the sultry and the powerhouse. She is driven by the atmospherically technical duality of guitarist Scott and pianist David, and supported by the rigid rhythmic manipulation of Aeon on bass and Pat on drums. Crafting a marriage between the marketable and the experimental, every song they write spins a web of individuality that radiates passion and pulls you by your heartstrings deeper into the stylistic niche they have developed.

Glass Delirium takes pride in their stage productions and their ability to captivate a spectator in an extended moment of passion. These events are renowned by fans and executives alike for their ability to capture the essence of the art, promote beauty within chaos, and extend a universal unity amongst all who participate. High demand for this entrancing elegance keeps Glass Delirium on their feet, whether they are supporting national artists or headlining, at home or abroad.” 

One of my favorites from them is “Reality” but I also really like “Beside Myself“, “Consequential Halo“, “Snowy London“, and “Beautiful Plaything” to name a few others worth checking out.  If you’re fortunate enough to be in the Denver area, come to the show on 5/31 at the Bluebird. You can bet I’ll be there!
