In 2015, New Jersey’s Stolen Jars released their sophomore album Kept, which garnered attention from Consequence of Sound and NPR’s Bob Boilen among others. Since then, the band has continued to create music that showcases their collaborative efforts and growth as musicians. Touching on themes of loss, reflection, and renewal, the result is a brand new five track EP titled Glint. The band’s EP is set for release this Friday, but today fans can stream Glint exclusively here on Paste! Give it a spin in the player above.
Where does the name Glint come from? Frontman Cody Fitzgerald shares with us, “A glint is a shimmering reflection of light and, at the end of the day, that is really what this EP is, a small 16-minute moment of reflection. It is 5 songs centered around themes of loss and renewal, songs about finding hints of memory in the present and trying to keep sight of them just long enough to let them go.” He continues, “These songs were written at a time when letting go, of a relationship, of an era in my life, of my family home, seemed impossible, and so I wrote these songs in an effort to allow myself to move on.”
Glint will be released this Friday, April 7th. To pre-order the EP, head on over to https://stolenjars.bandcamp.com. A portion of proceeds from the EP will be donated to the Sylvia Rivera Law Project which "works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination or violence."
