CD Review: Glass Child Instructs Us "How Ghosts Are Made"

Swedish-born Charlotte Eriksson returns with her latest Glass Child EP entitled "This Is How Ghosts Are Made." Since her 2010 debut, Glass Child had a #2 hit on the Swedish itunes chart with her charity single "I Will Lead You Home" and her song-writing has grown without limits.

The five-song EP begins with her latest single "Tell The World." The song starts off gentle and innocent, until Eriksson's "hold nothing back" attitude enters the song's chorus and turn into into an anthem for survival. I love the dark wordplay of "Insanity" as her alternative, folk-rock sound creeps into your head. The force of a full-band is welcomed in "Best Part of Me" as she truly put her song-writing talents on display on the most mainstream alternative rock song on this album. Charlotte's folk roots shine on "Hynic Jerk" before ending with "The Devil's Sin" which captures all the aspects of Eriksson's talents and leaves us with hope of a full-length album soon.

The Glass Child performed only a handful of songs in 2011, so look for more dates in the near future. Please visit for videos, song samples and more from the new album.
