I was missing another little gem from , but thanks to a low-profile blog I quite like, I’m going to fix it.
Auckland-based Glove are a power trio made of vocalist/guitarist David Provan, bassist Ryan Harte, and drummer Jordan Puryer, “Smoker” is their second single released at the start of the month and undoubtedly their best one.
“Smoker” has its roots in the most dense and visceral post-punk with peculiar surf undertones, led by heavy pounding drumming, throbbing bass lines, dissonant and menacing guitar chords and the declaiming and commanding sour vocals to create a unsettling feel of thumping gloominess and catharsis.
Tense, direct, hypnotic and powerful, very promising.
