“The song itself isn’t just a single sonic snapshot, conceptually it is made up of a multitude of my own experiences, of all the house parties I went to when I was in high school. In a way Tonight is a form of tribute,” explains frontman, Ben Hannam.

Glass Towers have experienced an extraordinary 18 months, with February single “Jumanji” propelling them to the top of Triple J and radio playlists. The band have toured with the likes of Dappled Cities, Loon Lake and Neil Finn’s Pajama Club.
Originally born as a solo recording project of frontman Ben Hannam, Glass Towers were forged in the summer of 2008 with the addition of guitarist Sam Speck, bassist Cameron Holdstock and drummer Daniel Muszynski.
The past couple of years have seen the band walk a path of highs, from having ARIA Award winning producer, Wayne Connolly, on their 2011 debut EP, “What We Were, When We Were”, to earning spots at festivals including Splendour In The Grass.
The bands’ list of influences ranges from the literary genius of Jack Kerouac to the madcap mind of Syd Barrett and effortless cool of Lou Reed; from a childhood raised on a somewhat oddball mixture of Neil Diamond, Roxy Music and Simon & Garfunkel, to the paintings of J.M.W Turner and photographs of Robert Doisneau.
‘Tonight’ will be available Friday 7th September on HUB The Label (Dappled Cities, Winter People).
