Single Review: Worship – House of Glass

By on Wednesday, 2nd November 2011 at 12:00 pm
 

Though they formed just last year, Worship, based in Reading, have stirred up the scene with their evocative, unearthly sound. Their forthcoming single, ‘House of Glass’, reinforces their sound, layering gossamer vocals with a strong bass line and quickly paced drumming. Lead singer Tim Alexander sounds like he just got back from a funeral, lamenting into the microphone. His style is underwhelming, but purposefully so, and it adds a distinct mourning feel to the track.

This track sounds like an infertile landscape, haunting yet beautiful in its own barren way, with detail not apparent, but not absent. The quick paced beat is unsettling, but juxtaposes well against the rest of the track. Keep a wary eye on these boys: they could stand out against the sterile terrain, or fade just as quickly into the horizon.

6.5/10

‘House of Glass’, the debut single from Worship, will be released on the 21st of November. Below is a stream of ‘House of Glass’ and also the video to the band’s track ‘Collateral’.
