Glassio has shared his single “Make No Mistake” off his forthcoming debut LP For The Very Last Time. “Make No Mistake” is about feeling disengaged and isolated from the world. The production is minimalistic yet ambitious.
“I wanted it to mimic the feeling of being on the subway in New York, standing waiting for the train, stopping, switching trains. That was the blueprint I had in mind for the arc of the song,” says Glassio.
His airy vocals float over balearic beats and dance-pop melodies with intimate lyrics. The song also features backup vocals from NYC singer Daneshevskaya. The track’s line “I’ll fight the wars outside and pray” operates as an ominously prophetic statement on today’s current landscape. However, “Make No Mistake” serves as an optimistic and encouraging anthem when coping with circumstances greater than ourselves.
In his own words, Glassio says this of his single,
“I was having a hard time getting out of bed towards the end of 2018 and facing everyday life. My anxiety was starting to go through the roof and daily tasks like taking the subway started to become difficult. The seed for the song came from wanting to talk about those feelings and I wanted to write a song that could get me moving. The lyrics and melody of the verse hit me out of the blue at the same time one morning while I was lying in bed and it was just there, already completed. The whole thing just unraveled very naturally and I think more than any other song on the album, it was very much written in the middle of the situation that it was about. Usually, some time needs to pass before I write a song about an event, but this one was very much in the moment.”
