Glassmaps release debut single, 'Summer Rain'

We’re proud to announce that the latest act to sign to Lost In The Manor are Glassmaps, the new solo project of Joel Stein, guitarist with esteemed Aussie indie outfit Howling Bells. Joel is now based in the UK, but cut his debut album in Las Vegas with the assistance of Mark Stoermer, bassist in The Killers. We’ll be releasing that later this year, and to whet the appetite Glassmaps are pushing a series of singles, including ‘Summer Rain’, out on 26 May and already rated as “a thumping return” by Clash and "bold and brazen" by Line of Best Fit.

Joel has assembled his own killer band to perform his spine-tinglingly symphonic pop nuggets live, and following their performance at Lost In The Manor’s stage at this year’s Great Escape Festival in Brighton, Glassmaps have some pretty spectacular summer shows in the pipeline. We’ll soon reveal all, meanwhile, listen to ‘Summer Rain’ below.
