The Glass Hearts have shared their second single ‘Brick Dust’, following on from the release of their debut single ‘Coupe deville .
The band wanted to focus on making the song sound easily familiar to the audience, but ensuring it was equally refreshing and exciting. Drums on the track were played by Ash Sheenan of The Twang / Glenn Hughes, who’s legendary drum technique gives this track a distinctive feeling of confidence and attitude.
Paying homage to their working class upbringing, the band say
“It’s an ode to the council estates we both come from and the experiences we’ve lived through”. The lyrics – “Don’t build a wall between us” – tackles the issue of class divide both past and present. The pair say that ‘Brick Dust’ is a song that follows the sense of community and upbringing but also the harsh realities many people face.
The guys have crafted a really cool track here with an infectious verse courtesy of Sheenan’s drum skills that stumble into the uplifting anthemic chorus that just flows out of the duo, such is their talent for songwriting. Singer Tommy Coble’s vocals are a particular highlight as he lays down a confidence strut on the verses and then a soaring Pop God on the choruses. All wrapped up in some superb production.
