GLACIER VEINS RELEASE NEW VIDEO FOR “FEEL BETTER NOW”
Dream punk band Glacier Veins has teamed up with Brooklyn Vegan to exclusively premiere their new music video “Feel Better Now.” Fans can watch the band team up to take down a destructive monster – led by vocalist Malia Endres’ evil alter ego Ailam – now here. “Feel Better Now” comes from the band’s latest album, The World You Want To See, which was released on February 28th via Equal Vision Records / Common Ground Collective. It is available for purchase now at glacierveins.merchnow.com.
Shares Endres: “We are so thrilled to share the music video for ‘Feel Better Now’! Making a music video in the midst of a pandemic certainly brought some challenges but we are so lucky to have gotten to work with the amazing Georgia Harter and her team, who were so dedicated to making an exciting video while creatively working within the bounds of social distancing, wearing masks, etc. We hope this music video brings you some entertainment and nostalgia.”
When most people come to epiphanies, it takes a big moment to get them to change their mindset. But for singer/guitarist Malia Endres of Glacier Veins, looking at the world differently came easy. “This has been a gradual thing over the last three years, but I’ve been a lot more tuned in to my own thoughts,” says Endres. “If I ever feel my thoughts becoming too negative or pessimistic, I try and turn it around and see something good out of it.”
This was the message her and the rest of Glacier Veins—rounded out by bassist Kyle Woodrow, guitarist Jason Espinoza, and drummer Tyler Groce—explore on their new record The World You Want To See. While Endres has been writing and performing as Glacier Veins since 2015, releasing EPs in both 2017 (Dreamspace) and 2016 (Clear Your Head), The World You Want To See was the first project that had a finalized lineup from start to finish. “I started this project a couple years ago as my solo project, with hopes to turn it into a full band,” says Endres. “We’ve been through a lot of different members, but with this album we finally feel like we’ve found our set group. That makes it feel like a more collaborative songwriting process.”
With that, they took to the woods. Enlisting producer Justin Abel, they went to his studio on the outskirts of their hometown of Portland to record. “We spent about nine days in the studio, which isn’t a lot of time for nine songs,” says Endres, “but it didn’t feel like we were rushing through it. We had things mapped out but Justin had great suggestions. It felt like a great space to bust out a sick record.”
In short, they succeeded. The World You Want To See sidesteps the usual stumblings of a debut record in favor of giving their ever-growing audience even more work to hold onto. Having performed at Vans Warped Tour, 8123 Fest, Bled Fest, Treefort Fest, All Good Fest, and as part of Have Mercy’s final tour alongside Fredo Disco and Young Culture, they have plenty to build on. So it’s perfect harmony when Endres’ speaks about what she hopes fans will get out of the new record: “I want everyone to have a positive mindset and set goals and dreams for themselves—and put action toward reaching them.” If they have Endres as a role model, they’re in great hands.
Glacier Veins released The World You Want To See on Friday, February 28th via Equal Vision Records/Common Ground Collective. To purchase, please visit: glacierveins.merchnow.com.
