They might hail from Macclesfield but the first track taken from writing sessions for Racing Glaciers’ debut album was written when they were shacked up in a barn in Glastonbury. Fittingly, ‘What I Saw’ is a sprawling, sparse track – much like the Somerset countryside – that builds and lifts with a grandiose grace. “We’ve been experimenting with that expansive, post-rock-influenced sound for a while now and everything feels a bit bigger each time,” say the band. “We’ve finally got it the way we want it.” If heartstring-tugging, emotional hooks and glistening epics were what the five-piece were going for, consider it job done.
‘What I Saw’ is out on April 13 via Killing Moon Records.
