The indie pop scene is booming in Australia, so it’s very difficult for a song to stand out from the crowd. Sydney band Glass Towers has done this with their new track “Jumanji.” Formed in 2008 after meeting in the serene coastal town of Byron Bay, the four-piece are a band brimming with potential.
They released an EP in 2011 entitled What We Were, When We Were and have played at the Splendour in the Grass Festival among other shows, sharing the stage with the likes of Tame Impala, Metronomy and Neil Finn. Some serious pedigree indeed, especially after working with celebrated producer Jean-Paul Fung, known for his work with numerous Australian bands.
“Jumanji” gives off a beautiful tropical vibe from the get-go, with electrifying sparkling guitar lines Australian bands are renowned for. Coupled with towering choruses and throbbing percussion, this track is bound to receive heavy attention. Perfect for those weekends you never want to end.
