Interviews About Albums: Glassfield - Leave a Light On (2024)

In this new interview, we sat down with the American Shoegaze/Post-Rock band Glassfield to ask questions about their album, "The God Of Forest".

1. What can you say about this new EP/CD?

It was recorded at electrical audio in Chicago Illinois with Taylor Hales. Mixed by our guitarist and backing vocalist Joshua St. Moblo. We spent 6 years demoing for it and have enough to record another album but we want to write more together as a band.

2. What is the meaning of the EP/CD name?

“Leave a Light On” is the title and title of the last track and is meant to just be a statement about where we are as parents and adults. It has multiple meanings but is essentially the light at the album's end. Or tunnel? It’s whatever it means to who’s listening truly.

3. Which one is the composer of the CD/EP?

Ryan Harig wrote the music for the album as demos from home. Matt and Britt Younker helped flesh out the live sound of the record and all contributed to each instrument's sound. Tj Miller wrote the lyrics and recorded the vocals at Casa de Miller. For the next record we hope to write more collaboratively.

4. If you had to pick one song, which one would you pick?

For this record probably God Complex. It’s the oldest song dating back to a band Ryan had in 2003. But its meaning which is up to the listener is very personal.

5. Is there a special message in this EP/CD? If there is, what is it?

It’s not a concept album but it could be for anyone if they want it to be. Ultimately it’s whatever someone takes from it. Hopefully a release or a good vibe or some catharsis.

6. Are there some lyrics that you'd love to share?

All TJ’s lyrics on the album are great as are Josh’s on the title track but “Danse Macabre” is a reference to dungeons and dragons but also (at least for Ryan) about social media and its negative side: “ come down to make a scene. Pulled out your heart. Give it all in one photo. It was all make-believe from the start. In an empty cage where nothing connects. This doesn’t work anymore. Won’t answer me. I can’t remember what’s in my head or what you said. Push pull. Pin kill. Die try. Stuck to the wall. Pay to play. Vanity on display. Sink swim. Fail Share. Lost cause. Stuck to the wall. Try to say. Swallow the decay. Come down. Pulled out your heart. Swallow.” Those are all good and that song is intense. So mission accomplished. But it’s again what the listener makes of it.

7. Which inspirations have been important for this album? Like musically or friends, family, someone you'd love to thank especially?

We’re inspired by all these things. Mostly our families and friends who we love. Life in general is insane in the modern age and most of our band practices are a good balance of humor, therapy, and loud riffs so it all works out. We just wanna make music that people can connect to, and that we’re proud of at the end of the day.
