Gliss - Devotion Implosion
Los Angeles three-piece Gliss are about to release their latest album ‘Devotion Implosion’ which will once again have them bringing their fuzzy, shoegazing guitars, heavy drums and spaced out vocals to our ears.
This album will draw obvious comparisons to Psychocandy by Jesus and Mary Chain but after some further listening will reveal some other elements from BRMC to the Pixies.
First single ‘Anybody Inside’ thunders out the speakers with thumping and fuzzed up bass lines and even fuzzier guitars that would make BRMC very jealous. The main concern I have with the album is despite it being a good album it reminds me too much of other bands. You’ll be listening to a track and it will remind of something else you’ve heard before on a different album by a band in the same genre so you’ll stop the album but on the alternative instead. Like I said it is a good album but it’s just not unique and stand out enough for it to stay in your head.
