Brooklyn electro indie / dream pop artist Glassio has released his double single, consisting of “Breakaway” and “Everybody I Know Moved To L.A.” today. Both dreamy pop songs arrive just in time for warmer weather and are taken from Glassio’s upcoming full length album See You Shine, set for release May 18th. Listen to them now below.
On the orchestral-electronic-soul ballads he said, “I wrote both of these songs in the Summer of 2020, just as the last wave of my close friends decided to move from NYC to L.A. New York was starting to feel very different, largely due to the pandemic. The song was definitely my emotional reaction to seeing New York change–not just suddenly after March of 2020, but over the 11 years I’ve been living here. It felt like with each passing year, you’d lose a number of your friends to the West Coast. .”
“‘Breakaway’ is my ode to anyone feeling out of place in a community and needing to find the courage to leave that place in order to fulfill their dreams and self-actualize. It stems from the perspective of leaving a broken home and turbulent childhood behind through self-reinvention. I liked the idea of packaging these two songs as an A/B single because to me they capture opposing moods, but from different sides of the same coin.”
