I consider Glass Museum to be in the top tier of modern jazz bands but they often fly under the radar because they don’t fit that drums, piano and double bass standard. Instead, Glass Museum uses a fair amount of electronics in their work and often feels like a jazz and modern classical merger via electronica. Jazztronica is definitely a thing and their new single “Reflet” is a perfect example of it. Effortlessly rich in layers of pianos, drums and synths and brooding in cinematic flair, “Reflet” is inspired by imagination. Since the last few years allowed little travel, the duo decided to take an interstellar journey in their minds instead.
“Reflet” has an excellent music video that is based on the idea of reflections and seeing two sides to things as light projections pulsate on two nesh nets. That matches the jazz and electronics being two sides and you could say natural and electronic instrumentation too. I love how the track feels a bit Arabian in its scales too, making the cinematic final third really shine. The single is out now. The album, also called “Reflet” is currently scheduled for release on the 29th of April.
Keep up with Glass Museum’s releases on Bandcamp.
