A Croxley band say they are “excited” for what 2023 has to offer after a whirlwind year.
Glassminds have recently played to raucous crowds at a variety of local venues, released their debut EP, Influx, and arrived on the festival scene, headlining the Introducing Stage at PennFest and playing at Croxfest.
Now they are looking to the future with a charity gig at Croxley Green Community Centre on December 16 in aid of War Child.
They will then start 2023 performing at the iconic O2 Academy Islington in January.
It comes after a meteoric rise for the band who have taken to the stage at venues such as The Horn in St Albans, Old Town Hall in Hemel and several locations in London including the famed venue the Camden Assembly.
Glassminds describe their music as a “multi-layered sound balancing powerful drum and bass rhythms with soaring riffs and lilting melodies that expose raw, emotive lyrics”.
Commenting on the experience to date, lead singer Sam Tims told My Croxley News: “What a high.
“We got such a buzz from playing in-front of a huge crowds that gave us so much positive feedback.”
The band are now turning their focus to the charity gig in December with Sam explaining more about their preparations.
He added: “There’s so much unrest in the world and children always suffer. Often as forgotten casualties. So War Child is a charity we wanted to get involved with.
“We’ve been in the studio recording a live performance for them but wanted to do more. Hence the charity gig.
“We’re really excited to be part of a great evening, playing to friends, family and local residents whilst raising money for War Child.”
