When Particles Collide
Sasha and Chris met in Bangor Maine during a 2010 local production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Sasha was cast as a guitar playing Yitzhak and Chris played Schlatko, the band’s drummer. Six months later the two were a band, and three years later the band became a marriage.



Since forming in 2010, When Particles Collide has self-released seven sets of recordings: a six song demo (Mass to Energy), a four song EP (Making Enemies), a ten song full length (Pop!Pop!Bang!Bang!), a five song EP (EGO), a nine song full length (Photoelectric), a very personal six song EP (This Town), and a collaborative 4 song EP (ECOTONE).



Sasha and Chris tour the US extensively and during 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 averaged between 70-95 shows per year. During the summer of 2014 they completed a marathon 8 week, coast to coast tour of the entire US. March of 2015 and 2016 found them playing 15 shows in 16 days and two more 8 week summer tour taking them back to many of their favorite cities and new ones. All of their booking and promoting, like their recordings are 100% D.I.Y. keeping the American spirit of self-reliance, tenacity and resourcefulness alive and well.


The music of When Particles Collide includes Southern Rock choruses, New Wave a la Blondie vocals, lightning speed Green Day-esque drumming, classic Motown grooves and Queens of the Stone Age-style riffs — and yet somehow it all sounds like Chris and Sasha.

"The best music can’t be categorized.

With a band like Glass Twin, you can try an easy term like Psych, or Dream Pop, or some hyphenated whatever, but you’re still not there. And more importantly, they’re crafting something unique, something you haven’t heard before. Their influences aren’t guarded, nor are they obvious. You may hear elements of Krautrock, or Shoegaze, or even a hint of the cinematic scope of Brian Wilson when you listen to their recordings or see them perform live. But to paraphrase an old cliché, the present is greater than the sum of its past.

Glass Twin weaves an array of unexpected textures and moods into a dreamlike collage of sound and imagery. And like most dreams, they take you somewhere unexpected. They’re alternately mesmerizing and startling. There’s menace and longing, joy and pain, and a certain indescribable raw beauty in each song.

You really have to experience Glass Twin for yourself. And then you can place them in any category you have a mind to. Or you might just step back and say, “Damn, that’s a great band”.

Glass Twin is Marshall O'Leary on keyboards, Karanja Burke on guitar and vocals, multi-instrumentalist Ricky Tubb, bass player Zak Bryant, and Kevin Cornell, who delivers his vocals from behind the drums.

O'Leary and Cornell were the principals of Glass Twin’s acclaimed predecessor, Marionette. Bryant shares his time and talents with Shy, Low. Burke spent time in Blacksburg, where he played in True Sound and No Time. And Tubb is a beloved veteran of the Richmond music scene."
