Glass Dove’s emotional album debut Half Life Wilderness
Nashville based Glass Dove has just unveiled his full-length album debut, Half Life Wilderness, produced by Owen Biddle (The Roots, John Legend). The ten track album features riveting synth pop songs hinted with sweeping indie rock riffs and lush arrangements.
Thematically, the album as a whole centers around the dysfunction found in all different types of relationships. The title track and album name was derived from the “‘Half-Life’ the time it takes for something to decompose in nuclear fallout,” and “‘Wilderness’ is the middle of nowhere. Those two things sound pretty evocative to me. That’s what happened in my life. It was like nuclear fallout. I torched the whole thing, looked around, had a brand new fresh start, and decided where to.” confides Glass Dove.
Highlights include “Cigarette Sunset” [feat. Liz Cooper & the Stampede], a layered rich harmony driven single and the hazy “Patterns of My Mind” complete with washed out synths and an infectious chorus. Overall Glass Dove has succeeded in crafting a unique album that feels both nostalgic and fresh.
