Opening up with “Pilgrim”, we’re greeted with a catchy blend of light rock and bouncy pop melody. At its liveliest it’s a really energetic foot tapper of a song, simple chorus and simply a joy to listen to, but at its most tender it’s a thing of beauty. Ross Dixon with an impressive set of vocals; the charming young lad that he is… “Runaway” focusses more so on the rockier side of things; it’s a far more guitar driven number with a more assertive tone to it. In places it’s got an ever so slight resemblance to fellow Welsh rockers 4th STREET TRAFFIC in its big, bold production allowing for a huge positive sounding song, a flurry of noise and an emotional climax, it’s an EP highlight.
“Phoenix” returns to the happy-go-lucky style of the EP’s opener, at its peak leaning more towards a fun pop-punk style, another top tune, before we finish up on “Young And Free”. It doesn't stray far from the path and gives the listener another dose of simple but more importantly, enjoyable pop inspired indie rock, rounding things off nicely. Glass Giants haven’t defined progress purely for themselves here, what they have done is inadvertently spoken on behalf of the whole south Wales music scene. With more and more bands getting inspired to pick up instruments and write music, more and more bands have to up their game to get anywhere in life, and progress as musicians in an already flooded industry. Glass Giants haven’t cared about sounding a particular way to fit in, or used breakdowns because their popular, or this, or that, they've just written quality songs and play them well, that’s all you need to stand out sometimes. Expect to hear these boys on the radio sooner rather than later.
