Starting in late 2019, indie music fans across the internet began to see the refrain “glass beach band” plastered across the web. This was, of course, the work of the band glass beach and their fans around the release of the first glass beach album. While spearheaded by fans, the barrage of replies, retweets, and posts about “glass beach band” has grown rapidly over the last 6 months or so, but the simplistic phrasing and all-lowercase styling began much before that.
Frontperson of glass beach and songwriter for the band, “Classic J” McClendon, had released a few cryptic album promo videos over the early months of 2019 among a collection of tweets featuring their pet rats. At that point, there had really only been a few posts about glass beach’s existence as a music project at all. Over the years, J had mentioned the band in a couple scattered tweets, and released a 2018 single, “neon glow”, but even upon the release of the full LP in May of last year, the initial interest was almost entirely from J’s friends (locally in LA and over the internet), and those very much involved in the LA diy electronic scene.
