I don’t know about you, but I don’t care much for Christmas unless it’s delivered fresh from Denmark along with the kind of lovingly scruffy pop tunes that eminate from the coolest kids in town – AKA Glow Kit.
Fine of face, and so masterful of a GREAT pop tune, Glow Kit graced our ears with an awesome self-titled Glow in the Dark album back in May (seriously rad if you don’t own it) – before popping over for a couple of brief legendary shows whilst oh so *nearly* getting the Ikea advert.
They didn’t, so we all live on in poverty – but safe in the knowledge that credibility is still intact. So, you can happily listen to this – and know you’re cool. Crack a Hooch… It’s all GOOD!
You’ve heard their free single, seen them at TGE and here now is the heart achingly ace Glow Kit byGlow Kit - a slice of power pop so hot this album is all over in under 26 minutes, even though there’s 14 tracks involved. Go purchase if you like epically cool albums in hand-spray-paintedGLOW-IN-THE-DARK sleeves. Only 100 of the ltd edition ones exist, and they almost killed Tom AC/DSleeve. Our shop is the place!
Rather than me wax lyrical, why not listen to wise words – here from the good folks at Blue Walrus: “A record like this sounds incredibly vibrant; they could write these kinds of songs in their sleep, but not a single one sounds tossed off, and Head Factory, the song which was used to flag the album before release, is merely the tip of the iceberg. Do You Reallyand Misunderstood are the songs on which the band sound the most raucous, but the entire album is filled with an infectious, feel-good energy. Glow Kit write songs simply for the pleasure of making music, and it’s a noble ideal that they deserve plenty of credit for.”
Wanna hear another choice cut from the record – oh of COURSE you do…
