After releasing their head-banger single, “Black Moon,” a few weeks ago, Jersey rockers Screaming Females are back; this time with a video for their new track, “Glass House,” as introduction to their upcoming album All At Once — out on February 28th via Don Giovanni Records.
As Screaming Females have been kicking for more than ten years, they’ve had time to explore their capacity as musicians — and in their new track, “Glass House,” they’re trying something new: patient simplicity. With expert calculation and sparse arrangements, the “Glass House” is able to carve out a sound striking and severe.
On this, frontwoman Paternoster states: “A song like ‘Glass House’ is something we knew we were capable of, but it took a while to fully embrace.” She continues, “It’s very simple — just bass, drums, and two simple riffs. In the past, I might have insisted on adding more. Practicing self-restraint is something I have consciously been trying to do.”
The video for the track follows in this measuredness. Well, until about half-way through, that is, when the perfectly calm and complacent veneer shatters as the raging chorus blasts in, inciting a butler to start smashing glass vases on top of the band members’ noggins.
Watch the video below to understand that craziness. Then, though there’s no Philly stops listed on the upcoming tour, the band recently announced three new album release shows lined up for Monty Hall over in Jersey City that you can catch. Find more info on the shows here.
