Glimmerpost are located on different sides of the Earth, with the producer, beat maker and keyboardist in Australia, and the guitarist/bassist, singer and main song writer living in the U.S. Despite their distance they put together a very solid self titled EP. Their EP is an eclectic mix of shoegaze, indie pop, and various electronic styles such as breakbeat, hip hop, and IDM. These songs are engaging and really a blast to listen to. The seven songs go by fast and leaves the listening yearning for the full length that will hopefully be coming out soon.
The EP starts out with “gloombox” and upbeat number that is quite a highlight. Everything on this song really comes together nicely. The slightly distorted yet clear vocals combined with catchy guitars and synths will be an irresistible treat for shoegaze fans. The second song “boardwalk” is a nice change of pace and reminds me of something you would hear if you combined aphex twin and video game music with reverb laced vocals on top.. The programming is awesome on this song. “All be pure” is slower number with a pulsating, steady bass and smothered in white noise. The last song “off track” is yet another change is pace that is an instrumental piece that contains clean guitars and soft melodies. This EP offers a lot a variety for its 21 mins. Yeah-just go and get this right now.
