– From the ashes of LADY STRANGELOVE comes GLASS SKIES. Featuring two members of the now-defunct psychedelic act, Glass Skies have officially released their first single, “Highway”. Taking a bit more of a pop route than what they were previously known for, the three-minute tune still packs plenty of punch and serves as a perfect opportunity for Josh Van Looy to show off his incredible guitar skills. Glass Skies play at PilotFest on January 24, and headline the Crown & Anchor for the single launch celebrations on February 8. Stream the single online here.
