A fresh mix of electronic rock with a few drops of synth pop are the secret ingredients of the

Vancouver-based band 'OurGlassZoo.”

The band's debut EP in 2017 made it to the semi-finals of the biggest on-line song writing

competition (ISC) which featured high end judges such as Lorde, Kaskade, Tom waits, Bastille

and the late Chris Cornell. The songs 'Somehow Somewhere' and 'Listen' got radio play in both

Italy and the UK in 2018.

The follow up EP 'Hindsight' was recorded at Monarch Studios with Juno award winning

producer Tom Dorbzanski ('The Zolas') & Alex Penney. It was released through Sony Orchard &

Volunteer Media On March 20th, 2020.

Since its release, ‘Hindsight’ has over 250K streams on Spotify while the songs ‘Astronaut’, ‘Sins’

and ‘In your head’ have enjoyed radio play in Italy, the USA and Canada.

The single 'Astronaut' was also the band's first official music video, which stars Georgie Daburas

who plays Edward Spellman on the Netflix hit series 'Sabrina' and Karissa Ketter (‘Kim Possible’),

who was nominated for a Joey award for her performance. It won ‘best rock video’ at the LA Music Awards. The follow up Music Video for the song 'SINS' was nominated for a LEO Award and won many

prestigeous awards globally including the international

Music Awards.

 

The band completed the recording of its first full length album entitled ‘Aftermath’ with the support of Creative BC. The album features the single ‘Free’ which includes a collaboration with Juno award hip hop artist Prevail (‘Swollen Members’). The track has been remixed by KutMusta Kurt ('Linking Park' & The Beatie Boys') and features Moka Only as a guest artist. The second single 'Here' premiered on CBC radio while the third single 'Reminisce' enjoyed over 25K streams on Spotify in one month. The album will be released in June 2022 through SONY Orchard.

The Concept

OurGlassZoo is a society where trite routines are the norm as its citizens lack both purpose and empathy.  The "zoo" keeps the individuals in captivity, trapped in a glass bubble, reliving the safety net of comfort while conditioning the tamed mind, preventing them from achieving their full potential.

The band name is displayed in colour to remind us that light is trying to break in to break us out. It is the beginning of an awakening of self-determination and possibilities. 

The band members are freedom fighters for that movement.
