Toronto-based Glass Face originally formed in 2015 and released their last project, “You Are Nowhere” EP, at the end of that year. They’ve since remained quiet but now after a long hiatus, the group is gearing up to drop their debut album.

I Can’t Let Go is their first new single inspired by the volatile emotional states that course through us at the end of a relationship. From a sense of confusion, loss, and longing to plunging into the eviscerating maw of the abyss and then back up to a place of reasoning. It’s a dramatic journey portrayed with a gradual build that heaves with violent scorched textures and the bitter taste of loneliness fermenting under your fingernails.
