GLINTS, brainchild of J.M. Lemmens, is born out of a love for language, luscious sentences, and sincere music.

Growing up in Belgium (Antwerp) with a British background proved to be a fertile breeding ground for the creation of a sound that combines elements of hip hop, electronic music, and pop.The project sets out to titillate the senses whilst reinstating the importance of poetic quality in lyrics.

Second release “Sirens” followed up the explosive debut single “Dread“. These tracks headed up this EP, produced by Jergan Callebaut from VUURWERK with guitars and co-production from Mathias Bervoets, and released via indie collective Run Tell Secrecy.

After first shows in Belgium and The Netherlands’ most high-profile venues in support of VUURWERK, and as aftershow for artists like Jamie XX and Years & Years ( at Ancienne Belgique, Trix, Melkweg), Glints has also now joined Toutpartout’s European roster.
