The Glaciers' debut album, Quarry's Light, is a candid exploration of late adolescence, friendship, and love. The duo is comprised of couple Charlie Hoyt and Basia Kurlender who have released a handful of EPs together in the past year and a half. Kurlender and Hoyt create a tender ode to New York while referencing settings like Coney Island and Scully's Den, a Brooklyn show house. Their intimate and simple but evocative lyrics function like secrets notes passed back and forth. Kurlender's voice, in particular, compliments The Glaciers' heartfelt compositions. "Songs don't have to be sad/ When you write them with your friends," the pair sing in the album's opening track "Scabs," expressing the joyful ethos of their music.
The Glaciers' Quarry's Light is out now via Bandcamp.
