Description

The Man In A Glass EP is the result of the band’s need to express our artistic sensitivity and musical ideas. It draws inspiration from all kinds of rock, ranging from progressive all the way to alternative rock.

The lyrics are inspired by different day-to-day topics and stories: for example, The Man In A Glass talks about alcohol abuse as a means to defy reality – hence the play on words. Our Lady Of Grace refers to a local legend about “La Madonna di Nettuno”, the famous statue in the bands hometown. Legend has it that, whilst on the way to Naples from the harbor of Ispwhich, a massive thunderstorm forced the ship transporting the statue to dock in Nettuno – where Our Lady Grace remains to this day. This episode was interpreted as a sign of Our Lady Of Grace’s will to settle in Nettuno.

What has inspired the writing of Mask, is the human need to sometimes wear a “mask” in order to conceal our feelings or longing for another person’s company, while You Are Gone expresses all the sadness that comes with losing a loved one. We always hope that, wherever that person may go (some place else, if not the afterlife), he or she may keep us in their memory.

    Quattro tracce solamente ma che mi hanno conquistato fin da subito. Gli Stairs of Life sono un quartetto romano che con questo ep dimostra un grande talento nel comporre e suonare musica ricercata, melodica e intensa …read more

    Dopo circa 20 minuti si conclude quindi “The Man in a Glass”, pubblicato, fortunatamente, in formato fisico dalla Sliptrick records, e ciò che ci rimane è un disco con una buona longevità, che fa ottimamente sperare per il futuro, in vista del primo full-length.

  3. progressivamenteblog.blogspot.it

    La Sliptrick, specializzata in progressive di natura trasversale, è l’etichetta che promuove l’opera, un lavoro dove l’inquietudine di fondo sa essere cupa e mesta, con racconti borderline fatti di bicchieri svuotati, amori fuggiti e maschere giornaliere per difenderci da chi ci sta intorno, storie che trovano una loro dimensione sia nelle parti più hard che in quelle lievi e nostalgiche che presentano anche qualche rimando ai sempre attuali Pink Floyd. The man in a glass è formato da soli quattro brani, tutti validi ed estremamente gradevoli, un bel biglietto da visita in attesa di un primo full lenght più corposo …read more

    Post rock attitudes, vaguely distortion in the its arrangements, “The Man In A Glass” it contains a very touching voice and melancholy tones and as so deep are the feelings and brilliant the music, this EP is one of more interesting work I’ve heard this year …read more
