San Diego Synth-Pop act Glass Spells conjures 80s retro beats with hints of, Indie, post-punk, electro-pop, and contemporary electronic music—in many ways evoking the sensibilities of acts on such rosters as Minimal Wave Records and Italians Do it Better, while shadowy enough for any fog-laden darkwave club night.
Together, the band, featuring Anthony Ramirez (Synthesizers / Bass), Tania Costello (Vocals), and Michael Buehl on drums, weave melodic sonic textures over frosty synths, mesmeric female vocals, all led by driving bass lines, and percussive dance beats.
After their debut release in 2014, Glass Spells have been featured on radio stations in San Diego (91x, FM949 ) and also other college radio stations such as KXLU. The buzz around Glass Spells, known for their impressive live shows, has led them to be showcased at the San Diego Music Thing, and the best new band by San Diego uptown news. Recently they were also selected as the San Diego’s – 91x radio local break.
Across the five tracks on the band’s Mirrors EP, Glass Spells capture a sound that is both fresh and nostalgic, with dark rhythms that lie somewhere between Ladytron and SSQ.
