Boomkat Product Review:
Mordant Music hits square between the oculars with Glass Isle's debut album of diaphanous, eldritch ambience. The Glass Isle would appear to be a mystical landmass dreamt by a duo named Natalie Williams and Zuleika AvTes. It's the sorta desolate place we'd imagine to be covered in soupy haar half for the year, and scorched for the rest, turning the sandy land into hyaline tone sculptures resembling singing statues. A drift between its twenty songs is an intoxicating experience, perceptions diffused and confused by disorienting recursive melodies and a maze of siren-like voices pinging like beacons across its gentle topography. The effects distinctly recall Robin The Fog's ghostly spatial inquisitions as much as Grouper's lonely paeans or a rapidly cooled, petrified version of Natural Snow Buildings eyrie atmospheres.
