About Glass Affection
In November of 2011 an idea was conceived by the founder of the band, Donovan Gibson, to create a full-sounding, one-man-band, music project. The main objective of the project was to create an entire song through live looping. As the project progressed, so did the ideas. In early 2012 Michael Wasmund, friend and former bandmate, began contributing ideas and eventually joined the project playing bass. The duo quickly began playing shows in Southern Arizona and parts of California. The duo was described by some people to have an 80’s feel with a modern attitude. In June 2012, Jesse Shank took interest in the evolving group as they tried to pin down their sound. Jesse now plays guitar for the trio, contributing a large array of ambience and heavy effects. Although still a young group and will continuously evolve, Glass Affection focuses on obscure effects with a large variety of genres, looping, synths, and other electronics. To this day their sound is compared to modernized works of Oingo Boingo, The Cure, Depeche Mode, and more modern bands such as Yeasayer.
