BRITISH ECLECTIC INDIE POP DUO MY GLASS WORLD RELEASE NEW VIDEO ‘WHAT WE CALL LOVE’ - AN ODE TO DISINFORMATION AND UNINTEDED IRONY
Off the back of their critically acclaimed 2022 album ‘Tree.shadow.piano.’ - British duo My Glass World have today released their striking new music video for single ‘What We Call Love’, depicting scenes from across the globe juxtapositioned with lyrics of disinformation, and the questing of what we call love.
““What we call Love” started life as a repetitive riff on a small string section. I wasn't sure how the track was going to work but sometimes it’s better to start from a place other than the norm. It’s insistent musically and the musical repetition suits the lyrical meaning. The words refer both to the straightforward meaning of the title, and the many disinformation campaigns that subject us daily to Orwellian doublespeak. So when the Russians say for example that the only thing they feel for the Ukrainians is love because they are brothers, the words come with a huge dollop of unintended irony as the Ukrainians and everyone else would beg to disagree.” – Jamie Telford
Their latest offering ‘Tree Shadow Piano’ (2022) was willed into existence from a variety of sources and under the various environmental lockdown constraints of 2020, written in Scotland, refined and polished in Sean’s studio, Famous Times in Clapton.
Jamie himself says, “Plagues tend to promote disruption and change, and without being too ironic - death. In the case of ‘Tree Shadow Piano’ mercifully no one went west. Metaphorically perhaps. This album is a jaundiced, jowly look at what’s going on in the world. We are all subject to the same forces, but sometimes the toothpaste forced out of the tube displays itself in different forms.”
“‘Tree Shadow Piano’ is not a protest album, but many of these heartfelt songs vibrate to an inbuilt rage at the geo-political process. Let it howl, sit back and enjoy.”
Delivering an eclectic meld of rock, pop, jazz and classical, My Glass World offer a catalogue of 6 albums to date, there’s a lot to listen to, a lot to reflect on, and a lot more to come. Find out more: myglassworld.com
