Glass Beams were formed around founding member Rajan Silva, stemming from the rekindling of childhood memories related to his father, who emigrated to Melbourne from India in the late 1970s. Silva was drawn to the fusion of Western musical styles and traditional Indian music showcased in his father’s music collection. Iconic Bollywood vocalists such as Asha Bhosle coexisted with blues legends like Muddy Waters and DVDs like ‘Concert for George’ - a star-studded tribute to the late Beatles member George Harrison - were in heavy rotation growing up. This cross-pollination of East and West, of old and new, is a sentiment that the trio have sought to capture in their self-produced, serpentine, psychedelic-tinged music. 
Throughout their output, Glass Beams present a timeless fusion of cultures and sounds beamed through a prism of live instrumentation and DIY electronica, all wrapped up in a mesmerising visual world of their own creation.
