Despite an average age of only 19, Sydney/Byron Bay four-piece Glass Towers have gone from strength to strength since their formation in early 2008.

They have shared the stage with bands such as Metronomy (UK), Tame Impala, Blue Juice, The Holidays and Cloud Control, as well as earning a spot (at the age of 17) on the Splendour In The Grass 2009 bill opening the main stage (Bloc Party, Flaming Lips, MGMT, Friendly Fires).

2010 saw them chosen as finalists in Triple J’s Unearthed High Competition and record their soon-to-be-released debut EP with acclaimed producer Wayne Connolly (The Vines, Josh Pyke, Dappled Cities). With their infectious brand of indie pop already winning over a loyal fan base and catching the ears of the industry, the band is set for big things in the future. Beach Hotel tomorrow night.
