The first song their album is called “Highrise,” and it’s really great. This kind of band is all about the tones, and the tones on everything here are great. The piano is rich and full, the guitars are perfectly overdriven and shimmering and the drums are a great mix of both room and tight. This kind of sound takes forever to put together, and Glorie sounds like they’ve got it all under control.
My favorite on the album is the second track, “Music For A Horror Movie.” That’s a really accurate title, I’d say. This song is pretty creepy. Once again, the tones are incredible, and that’s what sets these guys apart. There’s even a theremin sort of sound in there. That’s appropriate for this kind of song.
If you’re in Memphis, go find Glorie and try to get a show set up! If you aren’t, check out the Bandcamp page. You can stream all nine tracks for free, or buy them for $10!
