Artist: Dressmaker
Album: Glass
Number of Tracks: 4
Release Date: 23rd June 2014 

After developing a reputation as a fearsome live act and being praised by big names like NME & VICE, The lads from East London, consisting of Charles Potashner (vocals), David López (guitar), Tom Fanthorpe (bass) and Ben Jack (drums) are finally releasing their début album on June 23rd.

Starting off with the album’s title track Glass, Dressmaker definitely starts the album loud, making sure that you know that this band isn’t something to mess with. This song has a very psychedelic and unique sound to it, with the song, at times, having a quite timid attitude. But then dressmaker instantly makes you forget about that, again, with their loud and in-your-face style.

Going straight into the frantic and frankly mad The Future, they carry on from Glass with their unique and psychedelic sound with a fusion of sounds that will completely

The third track on the EP is We Breathe. This takes a side-step from the usual madness that you’ve heard so far and goes into a more post-punk feeling song.

The final song on the Glass EP is Skeleton Girl, which is a beasty 7 and a half-minute song to bring the EP to a close  finish.

It’s safe to say that dressmaker aren’t out there to win over your heart, they are there to take it. With force.
