Idol Omen
(Western Vinyl)
Releasing: 27 October

Duo Mike and Elliot have turned Glass Ghost into something more than another hipster band from the New York City scene. After various previous projects, Mike and Elliot have finally found the right formula for their talents in Glass Ghost. The first two singles, “Like a Diamond” and “The Rain” of their new LP Idol Omen offer a lot to the listener; both musically and lyrically. With trancey beats, and bouncing rhythms, this is perfect coffee house music. Supposedly the album’s narrative follows a metamorphosis of the modern business man into….what, exactly?
