"Desire is such a fickle friend," says the indie-pop artist, who returns three years after her 2010 debut.
"Ultimately, what sort of artist do you want to become?"
It's a simple question, but Cameron Mesirow, the singer-songwriter better known as Glasser, isn't sure how to answer it at first; for an artist so layered and intellectual, that's understandable. However, she soon settles on a response to sum up her ambitions with the eletro-pop act Glasser: "I'm going to push myself to be the most creative and accessible at the same time as I can possibly be."
On her blissfully intricate sophomore album "Interiors," due Oct. 8 through True Panther, Mesirow certainly has the creative side covered. In terms of accessibility, Mesirow gushes, "I love singing live; that's my favorite feeling in the world," as if she's auditioning for "American Idol." And despite playing alongside acts like The xx and Delorean in support of her 2010 debut "Ring," she listens to mainstream pop far more than indie music, citing Beyoncé as a particular inspiration.
