Glint is a synth pop group founded in New York by former Broadway performer Jase Blankfort, who serves as its main singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist.
Switching focus from acting to music in his late teens, the Orangeburg, New York native formed Rely Records
with his older brother, Adam Jordan, as an outlet for his songwriting, and became a regular on the college touring circuit in the Northeast. Recorded in Boston, Glint's debut EP, Discipline Is Remembering What You Really Want, was released in 2005. The debut full-length Mode to Joy arrived in 2007 and showcased the project's post-punk revivalist, synth-textured indie rock. It featured musicians Phil Selesnick (keyboards), Dylan Kelehan (bass), and frequent collaborator Matias Tebaldi (drums) as a provisional lineup. Sound in Silence followed a year later, and Glint EP appeared in 2009. After expanding the band's touring sphere to across the U.S. and Europe, and netting support spots for acts such as MGMT
and TV on the Radio
, Glint signed with Votiv
, which released the EPs Introvert and Extrovert in 2015. The following year, the band's third LP, Inverter, continued in the vein of recent output, offering a contemplative tone and lush, arena-friendly production. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi
