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.

I don’t know what it is with men’s jeans that make it so difficult to find the right pair. It takes time to go through all these denim brands and try styles like straight-legged, boot-cut, and then the disco favorite, flared jeans. Thanks to popular metal bands back in the day, acid-washed and stone-washed jeans were a thing–pair those with a biker jacket and some big hair, and you were set.
