Portland, OR-based band Glacier Veins returned with their new single and video “Cover Me” out now on Equal Vision Records. The single marks the band’s first new music since their beloved 2020 album The World You Want To See, and is a perfect example of the group’s mature songwriting style, seamlessly meshing complex guitar riffs with high-energy melodies and catchy lyrics. Produced by long-time collaborator Justin Abel, the track oscillates between pop-punk, progressive rock, and emo sensibilities. The official video is as ethereal as it is powerful, emphasizing the narrative of the song with an old-school cinematic beauty.
On the song, Malia Endres (vocals/guitar) stated:
“We are incredibly excited to be back with a new song that feels like a release of all the energy and emotion that have been growing and flowing since the release of “The World You Want To See”. On a personal level, “Cover Me” gave me an opportunity to tap into some strong feelings and really be able to express and validate them for myself. Besides just pure expression, though, writing this song helped me reflect on how I could use that emotional energy to bring more meaning to my life and also my relationship with the people and world around me. I hope this song provides you with the space and energy to also tap into and move with your emotions in a validating and constructive way.”
The band are also about to embark on an eleven-date west coast tour with pop-punk band The Home Team, dates below.
