A musical project that started with a suitcase full of songs inspired by a year spent living and travelling in Japan. Glass Ankle’s sound has since become renowned for encompassing soaring melodies, impeccable harmonies, oozing guitar & synth passages, and subtle experimentalism.

The collective has gained an impressive reputation over the last 13 years for captivating live performances and recordings which have lead to comparisons with a diverse range of artists, including Yo La Tengo, Beach House, Gomez, Tunng, Belle and Sebastian, and ’13-era’ Blur.
