Formed in 2002, Glissando create breathtaking soundscapes with piano and guitar. Add to that the beautiful haunting vocals of Elly May Irving and something quite wonderous is formed before your very ears. Based in Leeds, UK, the core of the band is Elly May Irving and Richard Knox but live shows often feature other players. In the past this has included members of Her Name is Calla and Immune. The ambient and sometimes experimental sounds bring to mind the likes of Low, Rachel’s, Gregor Samsa, Bat For Lashes, Stars of the Lid and Cocteau Twins. Glissando have released several limited edition CDr’s on Richard’s Gizeh and Loom record labels, most recently a collection of old works entitled ‘Loves Are Like Empires’. This release marked an end to the duo’s more experimental music and has forged a path to the more melodic direction Glissando are now heading in. A new record ‘With Our Arms Wide Open We March Towards the Burning Sea’ is out on June 23rd on Gizeh Records. A track entitled ‘Floods’ was released in December 07 on a Brew Records compilation, this has been re-recorded for the new album and can be heard on the bands myspace page.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
