The Hecks – Let’s Dream

I am a fan of The Hecks ever since their 2016 brilliant self titled album. Later, it got a bit more quiet around the Chicago post-punk quartet, now slimmed down to a duo with a glorious new style, replacing the intricate guitars with big, yet still intricate waves of synths.[…]


Daffo – Poor Madeline

“Poor Madeline” is a slow-burning, intense indie-rock track about being uprooted. The Pennsylvania singer/songwriter Gabi Demberg, aka Daffo, fuses a personal experience with a classic children’s book character. Gabi explains: “Poor Madeline” is about the loss of the feeling of home. I wrote it when I was 17, my parents[…]

Yodashe – Visualization

The London-based musician Yodashe does carefully crafted electronic music and fills it with meaning through beautiful words. Her new song “Visualization” – the third one she has released under her name since 2020 – is about the power of creating positive images in your mind. With an intricate production and[…]

Glassio – A Friend Like You (feat. Beauty Queen)

It’s been a while since we last heard something from Glassio, let alone having seen the fellow Queens resident live. Glassio is the musical project of Irish-Iranian songwriter-producer Sam R. Tinged, and this time, Sam teams up with Los Angeles-based dream-pop artist Beauty Queen for his new single “A Friend[…]

War Violet

War Violet – Different Formations [Video]

We have known Jummy Aremu, aka War Violet , for a while as an enchanting, hard-working musician in New York City. So we couldn’t be happier to hear that Kill Rock Stars and Bella Union have co-signed her. Her first release, “Different Formations,” expands the range for an artist who[…]

Meagre Martin – Mountain

Meagre Martin is a trio inspired by shoegaze, 90’s indie, or ‘faux country,’ as the band calls it, and are three American musicians living in Berlin, Germany’s cosmopolitan capital. It was in the summer of 2021 that singer/songwriter Sarah Martin (vocals, guitar) bonded with Federico ‘Freddy’ Corazzini (drums) and Max[…]

Beech Bossard

Bekah Bossard – Stranger To Myself

“Stranger to Myself” is about losing the grip on yourself and the world around you. This happened to singer/songwriter Bekah Bossard after moving to London. However, she also wants the song to show a way out of tough times. Bekah says about “Stranger to Myself:” “This one always reminds me[…]

Social Order – Crime

We’re excited to hear new music from Los Angeles and Las Vegas-based synth-rock trio Social Order. We loved Social Order’s 2022 single “Never Again,” and can not get enough of the brilliant “Crime” either. The new single will be part of their upcoming EP Tantalize, scheduled to be released in[…]

Alannah Moar

Alannah Moar – Reciprocate

Alannah Moar is a musician based in Glasgow. She wrote the original version of “Reciprocate” at 14 years old and updated the lyrics to a more mature story about “being in a relationship with someone that is good for you, but ultimately wanting to be with someone else that is[…]

FHUR – Hotlines

Following her exquisite 2022 EP Defrag, dark pop artist, producer, and songwriter FHUR just released the moody yet irresistible and very danceable “Hotlines.” While definitely on the darker side of pop, “Hotlines” could be the secret ace in a hot DJ’s repertoire. Born in Italy and now calling London her[…]


Tonguetied – Selfish Girl

“Selfish Girl” is synth-pop at its best. Elena Garcia, aka Tonguetied, sings with silvery vocals over shimmering synth arpeggios. The effortlessly beautiful song was “born from a place of frustration” and got its basic shape within a few minutes. Elena explains “As I grow and find my footing in this[…]

Lime Garden – Love Song

Only yesterday, I saw Warpaint, the female indie-rock icons, live, and here at glamglare, we’ve been following their career since the beginning. The more it is exciting to come across another all-female band like Lime Garden that, similar to the West Coast quartet, impresses with delightful vocal harmonies and intricate[…]


Glasser – Easy

The new Glasser album crux – judging from the four already released songs – is a glistening, soaring affair. While the album deals with many aspects of the human experience, including loss, it musically emphasizes resilience and healing. The fourth single, “Easy,” adds a sing-along quality to the New York[…]
