Charlotte Eriksson, better known as The Glass Child, is set to release her latest EP, This Silence Now. The multi-faceted artist, who has been writing songs, poetry and books for more than half a decade, takes her raw emotions and focuses them into cohesive songs which result in explosions of heartbreak. Her acoustic guitar-driven style is minimalistic and allows her tender, sweet vocals to shine through.
“Broadripple Is Burning”, the second track on This Silence Now, is a vocal masterpiece. The Glass Child‘s vocals ooze with emotional versatility ranging from vulnerable and timid to strong and fierce. That perfectly unbalanced and unstable passion drives the track hitting with waves of unfettered emotions. Her ability to convey her darkest thoughts into a verse is a gift.
While “White Spaces” and “Black Rose”, which are currently available as the initial singles on This Silence Now, are a bit on the darker, moodier side, the final track “Time, It Goes” is a hopeful and tender love song. The upbeat nature of this song is a pleasant way to end a stellar EP that is an emotional roller coaster.
Interestingly The Glass Child is an organic singer/songwriter in a world filled with digital manipulation and unnecessary vocal distortion. Her music is pure and it is real. Finding someone who can produce something so authentic can be a difficult task. Thankfully there are artists like The Glass Child that still produce this type of music.
