Vancouver-based Glass Forest is an indie-pop group composed of Nick Owen (vocals/keys), Stephen Clarke (bass/beats) and Abby Wale (vocals). They have gained a reputation for euphoric live shows that blend electronic dance elements with atmospheric soundscapes.
“Can’t Just Walk Away” was written about the emotional hardships following the fallout of a previous relationship; specifically, between band members Nick and Abby. It was a uniquely honest process writing and recording the single as they directly confronted the traumas. Oddly healing, it gave space to address and work through past issues, broaching subjects rarely discussed by ex romantic partners.
Glass Forest’s debut EP is anticipated in May 2023.
