Glint easily cleaned up the Independent Music World Series in New York last year; that’s because this space- and psych-rock troupe, fronted by the irresistible Jase Blankfort, has an air-tight live show. Additionally, though, Glint also has two intense full-length efforts to its credit. The band released the self-produced “Mode to Joy” on its own Rely Records last year after taking nearly a year to record it in an abandoned firehouse in Massachusetts.
Now, Blankfort and drummer Mateus Tebaldi, Glint’s other constant member, are preparing to launch “Sound in Silence” into the atmosphere come April.
“We’re willing to take our time and turn all our focus getting this record carried out the way it ought to be carried out,” Blankfort says. (The 20-year-old songwriter got his start in front of an audience not just as a musician but as a child actor.)
“Sound in Silence” was articulately produced by engineer Nic Hard, whose discography includes titles from the Kin, the Bravery and the Head Set, at the remote Blackberry Hill Studios in western Oregon.
