All long-time musicians and songwriters, the members of Glass Cases began creating music as a group in 2016, resulting in their 16-track debut album (released September 2017). The self-titled album has an overall darker sound, but it is balanced with softer and happier melodies. Glass Cases formed with the idea that emotions and thoughts could be instilled in songs, much like the concept of "glass cases" in the novel The Catcher in the Rye. The song styles are mostly of two types: ukulele and bass driven, and guitar driven (both with supporting piano and synth). They combine the soulful elements of Americana artists such as The Lumineers and The Avett Brothers with the darker and heavier elements found in alternative bands like Twenty One Pilots and The Airborne Toxic Event. They are continually creating music and refining their best sound, and will record their second album throughout 2018.
