Unforgettable
25 June 2022

When we are in between chapters of our lives or feel stuck, a lot of us take a road trip to clear our heads and move on from what has been haunting our past.

Our new song, “Unforgettable,” is precisely about that moment: when you are driving down a long winding road through a canyon or a valley, the windows are down and you feel the wind on your skin. You are on your own and finally have time to distance yourself and reflect.

Listen to “Unforgettable” on streaming platforms out everywhere now.

“Unforgettable” comes from our first full-length album, Aftermath.

Musically, we really wanted to approach this album with no particular genre in mind. We wanted our listeners to join us on a musical journey and let each song affect them in their own way.

The album contains collaborations with Indo-Canadian electronic producer O.K.A, Hip Hop artist Prevail from Swollen Members, guest singer Erin Puckey, a brass section lead by Gavin Grochowski, cellist Jonah Ocean, Keyboard player Tom Dobrzanski (The Zolas) and pianists/composers Sandra Stadler & Baenz Isler. It was a big undertaking with a blend of colors & genres.

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.
