BandRockPop

Live Pop/Rock band from London, England with a great energy and sound. Have had much experience playing live in London and are to be touring in the States from July - September 2006. Influences are Idlewild, Jimmy Eat World and Goo Goo Dolls.

Biography

With the line-up complete in 2003 when James took a seat behind the drums, Glassapple already had a mountain of songs to wade through. It wasn’t pop, and wasn’t rock, and the songs’ tormented edge that meant soaring choruses, vocal harmonies, insidiously melodic guitar lines and lyrics that move from dark to light and back again, make fitting into a category a difficult task. Simple love songs hold strange twists, and general laments on society are reconciled with beguiling simplicity. Jamie and Dean formed the band in early 2001 and, with an equal passion to come up with memorable and captivating tunes, the songs developed in earnest. As much as time allowed, the band gigged the London area in 2003-04 before the call of University sent Jamie to Edinburgh, Dean and Michael to Nottingham and James to Sunderland. But, undeterred, and with the independent release of 3-track EP See Through last year, the band will be recording in London their as-yet-untitled debut album this Summer before they embark upon a tour of the East Coast of the US, with hopefully a UK-release in the not too distant future.

Lyrics

Listen to Me

Written By: Glassapple

Look around, tell me who are,

Don't try to run, you won't get very far.

Seeing space, tell me what you see,

Keep the pace or miss an opportunity.

We try not to break,

We don't make mistakes.

Yeah yeah,

I won't lose you in the moment, it'll turn around.

Yeah yeah,

I won't bring you down.

Look around, tell me what you see,

Is the world what you want it to be?

You've got a choice, you can live without taking your voice,

Or you can listen to me.

We try not to break,

We don't make mistakes.

Yeah yeah,

I won't lose you in the moment, it'll turn around.

Yeah yeah,

I won't bring you down.

Here we are, tell me what you've seen,

'Cos we all say things that we don't mean.

Yeah yeah,

I won't lose you in the moment, it'll turn around.

Yeah yeah,

There's nothing left for me to say,

Nothing left for you to do,

Nothing left for me to prove

See Through

Written By: Glassapple

Politicians make decisions,

People just sit and listen,

To what,

They already know.

Democratic think about it,

Entertainment is the same as what,

We already know.

I see through, I see through what I wanna see.

I see through, I see through who I wanna be.

I see you and I see through,

I see the things that we don't know.

I see you and I see through,

And I see the things not on show.

Hedonism is my vision,

No one listens to my decisions,

Except me.

And I already know.

I talk to myself everyday,

But it doesn't seem to pay at all,

And now im the fool.

I see through, I see through what I wanna see.

I see through, I see through who I wanna be.

I see you and I see through,

I see the things that we don't know.

I see you and I see through,

And I see the things not on show.
