Music Trio GILT Release Affecting New EP ‘In Windows, Through Mirrors’

Anchored by the soaring and lovely vocals of Ash Stixx, and with some terrific guitar from Tyler Fieldhouse and Tilley Kormony, "In Windows (Ignore What's Missing)" had us really sit up and take notice.

GILT has talent. Now, this Floridian post-hardcore trio has released two further tracks which together comprise the ‘In Windows, Through Mirrors’ EP.

A limited cassette tape release is available via Knifepunch Records (US) and Hunkofplastic Records (UK).

The EP was mixed by Hansel Romero, and mastered by Matt Goings. Stixx’ yearning vocal on ‘Long Time Coming’ is emblematic of the EP’s story arc between realizing a difficult situation and accepting the painful resolution.

The collection sees drummer Ash Stixx taking over vocal duties. Their delivery is emotive and ethereal, anchoring the band within a beautiful post-hardcore soundscape.

As Stixx says, “It’s about finding a more level-headed approach to solving a problem and more mature way of change, estrangement, and removal.”

A fragile opening gives way to a lush and sweeping conclusion. The EP draws to a conclusion with ‘Through Mirrors (I Didn’t Want You As A Mirror)’, which details painful growth and estrangement from previously close relationships yet, ultimately, accepting the change.

“It’s about finding your own footing, away from role models,” says Stixx. “The song took on a new life and urgency as tragic losses occurred within close circles of the band, and coping with loss and grief throughout months-long tours fused the band together even closer.” It’s a devastating exploration of emotion in navigating relationships and learning to stand on your own.

And there are some deeply-embedded queer themes in all this artistry: gender dysphoria, body dysmorphia and mental health in an age of self-determination.

Nurse Practitioner Ari Kravitz

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
