stream Glacier Veins’ atmospheric pop punk debut LP ‘The World You Want To See’
Malia Endres launched Glacier Veins as an acoustic solo project back in 2015, and they've since evolved into a four-piece, self-proclaimed "dream punk" band and they'll release their first full-length album, The World You Want To See, this Friday (2/28) via Equal Vision/Common Ground Collective (pre-order). You won't have to wait until then to hear it though, as a full stream premieres in this post.
Glacier Veins aren't afraid of a little polished production (handled in this case by Justin Abel) and Malia is a real belter who's got the pipes and the melodies for pop radio, which makes this album very much on the "pop" side of "pop punk" (in a mid 2000s Fueled By Ramen kind of way). But Glacier Veins also shake things up, adding in bits of post-rock and math rock and an overall ethereal vibe that really earns them the "dream" tag. Malia's also just a great songwriter, with a clear depth to her songwriting and melodies you'd have to force yourself not to hum along to, and the band's hard-hitting rhythm section really drives this thing home. If you're not down with polished mid 2000s pop punk at all, this probably isn't for you, but if you've got a place in your heart for that kind of music, you'll probably find that Glacier Veins carry the torch for that era's bands extremely well.
Talking to us about the new album, Malia says:
We are beyond excited to share ‘The World You Want To See’ with you. We hope you can connect with and find motivation in these songs. They’re all about reflecting on the way you experience your world and how you allow things to flow in and out of your life. There is magic that surrounds each of us and we all have the power to make a positive impact on our own lives and world. We hope this record can be the soundtrack of your journey to finding and experiencing that magic and power.
Glacier Veins will also soon be touring with Have Mercy on the final run of that band's farewell tour, which just got underway this week. (They were a last-minute replacement for Selfish Things, who had to drop off). All dates are listed below.
