The Glass Child – The Year I Disappeared

Charlotte Eriksson [The Glass Child] is back with the first song from her forthcoming album.

Launching a crowdfunding campaign for her latest offering Charlotte said “For my last record I said that I wanted to build up storms inside of people; make them think and leave a mark.”

“With this record and with these songs, I’d like instead to throw out a soft blanket during dark nights. I’d like to shelter when it’s cold and comfort when you’re lost. I’d like the record to be like northern lights, lightning up the sky; something to follow when you simply don’t know where to go. Because that’s what those songs did for me. Writings these songs have kept me going.”

“My music has been my lifeline, and my wish is that these songs can be like guiding lights for someone else too.”

I have been a massive fan of the Glass Child’s music ever since I stumbled across her music via Twitter of all things.  If this track is anything to go by I am sure Charlotte will achieve her ambition of wrapping the listener in a warm blanket.  It is a beautiful piece.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
