Dreamspace, the sophomore EP from Portland dream-punks Glacier Veins, was released this week via Common Ground Records, and continues to build upon the band’s foundation of catchy hooks, atmospheric guitar work, sing-a-long choruses, and inspiring lyrics.

Just a little note before you begin reading this: I actually wrote most of this article two weeks ago, but a lot has happened for Glacier Veins since then! They announced their signing with Common Ground Records, and we premiered “Headspace Campout,” the first single from Dreamspace out October 6th! Everything they’re accomplishing further solidifies a lot of what I wrote, so enjoy my reflection on how Glacier Veins has gotten to where they are now!

Small-scale shows have always been some of my favorites to attend because I’m always impressed by how small crowds can often fill a room with more energy than some larger crowds I’ve seen. That energy was definitely present last Wednesday at the Analog Cafe when California bands Crooked Teeth and Such A Mess made their stop in Portland.
