Fronted by the eccentric Lisa Moore (Creature, Ariane Moffatt), described by journalists as the missing link between Grimes and Tom Waits, and joined by her partner Morgan Moore (Thus Owls, Forêt), Blood And Glass is set to release their debut album, Museum With No Walls, on October 21st. Until then, stream and download for free the single Paper Heart on bandcamp. The song is about a strange, beautiful relationship that lasted years and years, but ended abruptly. Lisa builds an origami world to reflect the fragility of this love.
Blood And Glass creates lush, beautiful swells and crisp aural samples, delivering a baroque-pop vibe that borders on experimental electro-rock. Lisa’s lyrics speak of floating boats in bottles, paper hearts and merry-go-rounds. Songs like Sing Dear Queen and Turning Turning poetically tackle sensitive subjects like superficiality, the lack of unconditional love and the place of women in our society.
Based in Montreal, Blood And Glass have been collaborating with highly talented local musicians, including Robbie Kuster, Patrick Watson, Mélanie Bélair, Brad Barr, Simon & Erika Angell (Thus Owls) and Jocelyn Veilleux, on stage and on their upcoming debut album. The music from Museum With No Walls takes on an immersive dimension in a live setting, with Lisa surrounded by a glow-in-the-dark forest and picturesque noise rock. Images speak louder than words, and that is why the band is excited to share a live performance of their song Floating Nora, shot during one of their shows at Nomad Nation.
They recently won a $15K video prize after playing a sold-out showcase at the Brooklyn Bowl (NY), so you definitely don’t want to miss their Montreal record launch happening on Saturday, October 18th as part of the multi-disciplinary arts festival Phenomena.
