The product of their fading pleasure harbour and seaside resort hometown, Littlehampton, in West Sussex, gloo speak for timeless day-to-day drudgery and angst. Modern life’s niggling problems, from unconquerable debt-mountains to living in “a shit hole” - and the lack of opportunities therein – are all fair game for their abrasive, high energy output. GLOO's electric debut album 'A Pathetic Youth' in 2019 received huge Radio 1 support from Jack Saunders, Dan P Carter & Huw Stephens, as well as Kerrang! Radio, BBC Introducing, AmazingRadio and more. The band also have DSP Spotify track placement with NMF US & UK, ‘New Noise’, ‘All New Rock’ & ‘Punked’, TV sync placements including Snatch, Tattoo Fixers, Hollyoaks, The Royals and BT Sport European Football Show. Live highlights include supporting Press Club, Queen Kwong, Demob Happy and Richie Ramone, as well as performances at The Great Escape, 2000 Trees and BBC Amplify. A rhapsody to lives gone stale, their pop-laced noise punk is the perfect soundtrack to those in need of a little 21st Century escapism. Describing themselves as the “inbred descendants of Metz, The Stooges and AC/DC” there are enough beyond-distorted guitars and demented solos to give Dinosaur Jr. front man J Mascis the permanent hearing damage he’s seemingly always craved, but unfalteringly underpinned with a righteous ear for melody and a keen song writing talent.
