Wellington, NZ band, Glass Vaults, make emotive music that has been described as post-ambient and glacial pop. Both born in the rural Manawatu of New Zealand Richard Larsen and Rowan Pierce met at university in Wellington where they began experimenting with music under the name Vaults.
Glass Vaults are best known for their succinctly titled Glass EP. It was recorded on Rowan’s grandmothers farm in March 2010. They then teamed up with friend Bevan Smith (Signer, Over the Atlantic, The Ruby Suns) to produce the recordings into the final release which commanded over 6000 downloads via Bandcamp as well as receiving international acknowledgement throughout the blogospheres. A year on from their debut, Glass Vaults return with their second; Into Clear EP. Recorded over the past 6 months, this new EP presents a logical yet exciting new progression in their sound.
Once again teaming up with independent American label Jukboxr this release is set to see the light of day in digital and limited edition CD and Vinyl formats.
