"Glass City VIce: Limelight EP review"

It is unlikely that you will have heard of this band, unless you saw them in Leeds a few weeks ago. However, their new EP Limelight will catch your attention. Combining influences from Futures and Manchester Orchestra’s recent album Simple Math, Brighton-based Glass City Vice thrives on epic buildups and breakdowns, layering instruments and anthemic vocal hooks.

Despite connections like You Me At Six and Knebworth house, Glass City Vice have drawn attention to themselves through their music.

‘Limelight’ is the perfect opener to their three-track EP. The chorus has the same amount of energy as Twin Atlantic do in ‘Free’. At points, cellos, violins and pianos sneak their way into the primarily guitar-based quartet. Without these touches, the delicacy of their final track ‘Clarity’ would be lost amongst the contrasting distorted guitars.

After a year and a half of hard work, Limelight proves that it is finally paying off. Now that they have refined their sound, they can start to show it off. The best way to listen to this EP is to simply get your brush out, make some space around you and let your hair down. - Counterfeit Magazine

Glass City Vice are an unsigned Brighton based band, breaking into the alternative rock scene. With influences such as The Xcerts and Manchester Orchestra, they are certain of their sound. Since forming in October 2010 they have worked hard to mould their sound in to a distinctive style. Their first EP ‘No Direction’, released in March 2011 and produced by Matt O’Grady (You Me At Six), had a successful response, doubling their fanbase.

Since forming they have performed all over the UK, playing over 70 shows in under a year including 3 UK tours. With high hopes and aspirations, they work hard to achieve what they want; continuously writing and performing wherever they can. Complimented for their catchy music, exciting live performances and with the media on their side, Glass City Vice have been referred to as ‘ones to watch’.

After a summer of touring the band are now working on their second Ep with renowned producer Gez Walton (The King Blues). With the Ep set for release February 6th and more touring to come they are proving themselves to be one of the hardest working and ambitious bands in the Brighton area.
