Wellington natives Glass Vaults are on the up; the two-man band composed of Richard Larsen and Rowan Pierce are releasing their first full-length album, Sojourn at a series of shows starting with Wellington's San Fran on 19th September.

Their hypnotic blend of electronic, washed pop sensibilities with a textural mixture of looped vocal hooks, guitar and percussion complement soaring vocals and lend the sound an ethereal quality with inherent substance. Their method of making music is experimental and laid-back, an organic process filled with much synthesiser dabbling in order to explore the layering behind their vocal aesthetic. The band describes their song's themes at times as filled with "celebration, environment and love," and other times "stoner gospel." The audience is bound to form their own perception of the recurrent threads behind the psychedelic sound on stage during the shows.

Slow Boat Records is also hosting an in-store record launch on the 12th September.
