Glass Pear

Glass Pear debuted their first EP in September and it's finally getting the recognition it deserves, as major network shows like Grey's Anatomy are featuring the stellar collection of songs. The brainchild of Yestyn Griffiths, the 5 songs on the EP are smartly melodic, with well constructed rhythms for the drums and fresh arpeggios that echo the influence of Radiohead, Coldplay and Keane (case in point: the song "Come Alive.") Yestyn's vocals are sturdy, comforting and assured amongst the raw keys and euphonious guitar, but they absolutely shine on the song "My Ghost" (which was composed after the EP came out, but can be heard on myspace). I can't wait for the debut album and when the tour is finally brought over to the states. Oh, and fun fact: Yestyn's sister is Jem.
