Sometimes we like gentle music. Sometimes we like rock music. And sometimes we need Glass Mansions. Fronted by sensual and sexy vocals of Jayna Doyle and the multi-talented Blake Arambula, the South Carolina-based alt-pop/indie rock duo have released their newest music video for their single, “Just Friends”.
The hard-hitting, intense single is laced with wailing guitar riffs, thunderous percussion and that nostalgic ’90s grunge themes layered with alternative and electro-pop melodies. The poetic, personal lyrics are intimate and are delivered with charisma and flare. Glass Mansions gives off that feeling of doing the wrong thing but for all the right reasons and you know you might regret the decision in the morning. “Just Friends” is that dark pulling desire of wanting more of what you cannot have.
And the official video for “Just Friends” is exactly how you would expect it to be. Set in a dark bar with a whiskey on the rocks in hand, you cannot escape the wanton pull of Doyle’s entrance. Highlighted in pinks and blues, the danger and risk is foreboding (even though the set looks like a row of library books). You know you should resist, but her gravity is undeniable, which mimics the song itself.
Try to deny loving this track all you want, but Glass Mansions has found a brilliant niche that incorporates the best of alt-pop and indie rock and “Just Friends” is the wonderful result. And even better, the duo is out on tour right now! All of the dates are below and pick up tickets: HERE.
