“Now, the story doesn’t stop there. After a few shots of Buffalo Trace, I watched TGC play their show – I took into account that what was happening on stage was a lot different than what I had seen before in local bands. The sound was different. The stage presence was different. The male to female ratio was 1:3 and it made a huge difference in how they are perceived by the audience. The crowd was mainly chicks (go figure.) and just like the Cheryl Dilcher and Wilson sisters of our time, here is a band who doesn’t give a f*** what sex YOU are. Musically, they range from sounding pop (like No Doubt) to sounding nostalgic (think Third Eye Blind) to sounding eerily lingering like the B-sides you would hear on a Black Sabbath record…it takes me back to the ol’ phrase at KSHE 95: “A wide spectrum of sound” – which sometimes isn’t the case with all bands you hear today…they will be ONE genre…this band omits that boundary and decided to acknowledge all of their sounds.”

“Q: What is one thing that separates your band from the rest of the St. Louis music scene? A: We like to blend a sense of intensity with an obscene amount of fun. We strive to not only cross genres, but feelings, moods, and mindsets.”

“While describing the band’s sound as “the quirkiness from Weezer and (slammed) that on top of the epicness of Pink Floyd,” Lindhorst excitedly tugs at her flower printed suspenders. Barnum jokes that all of the bandmates have emotional problems, which they bring to their songs along with an awkward sense of humor. “Somehow it’s just this giant melting pot of awesome,” Lindhorst says. Although Barnum writes the songs, the other bandmates get to add their own personalities as well. “(Barnum gives) us the room, and we painted it and put up pictures,” Durington says. Above all else, the band stresses the intense emotions put into its songs. The band played its tunes, such as the pirate rock song “Scalliwag” at venues in Jefferson City, St. Louis and Columbia. They also released a three song EP titled Burn and Void EP on March 15. The Columbia-based band will perform at The Blue Fugue on April 12.”

“Last week on The Local Project, host Jake Videmschek talked to The Glass Cavalry, a new import from Columbia that describes themselves as a “Weezer-Pink Floyd hot fudge sundae”. Here you can hear clips from the interview about the band’s origins and what they’ve noticed about moving into Saint Louis’ music scene, along with clips of Cuomo-Waters desserts in MP3 form. ”
