Glass Vaults Premiere "West Coast" at Gold Flake Paint

Glass Vaults are a group of close friends making pop music in Wellington, New Zealand. Formed in 2010 and once referred to as 'Glacial Pop', the songs from Sojourn, the bands debut LP (after three EPs), are from a warmer climate. Written during a summer in New York, Southern Florida and Wellington, New Zealand, it's songs are lush psychedelic folk, celebrating environment and love. Sojourn premiered at #1 on the New Zealand Independent Charts and at #5 on the overall charts. The album is available on iTunes and via Flying Out in NZ, on vinyl, CD, and as a digital release.

Gold Flake Paint premieres Glass Vaults' new "West Coast" video, today -- a euphoric track off ofSojourn. The clip, which GFP labels as "quietly magical counterpoint" to the song, was directed by Glass Vaults and shot in their home town of Wellington, New Zealand. It features the band's friend Kwame who "loves Michael Jackson and basketball."

Since their conception in 2010, Glass Vaults have: released three EP's on North American indie label Jukboxr; played to capacity crowds inside empty swimming pools and forests; topped alternative radio charts; toured New Zealand, Australia and the East Coast of the U.S.A; taken up residence in New York and had considerable praise across the blogosphere.

[West Coast] is a markedly emphatic moment from New Zealand’s Glass Vaults,
the kind of vibrant colourful moment of pop music that manages to weave its way
in to your climate no matter what season it reaches you in.
