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.
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.
Still fairly new and already with a sound that hints at some seriously lofty aspirations, the band have already been busy travelling all around the UK supporting the likes of Press Club, Queen Kwong, Demob Happy and Richie Ramone, as well as a number of performances at some of the UK’s most prestigious music venues, including Brighton’s Green Door Store, London’s O2 Islington Academy and The Dublin Castle.
Their music, vivacity and spirited live shows speak for themselves - gloo have their eyes firmly set on breaking out of the drudgery they were born from over the coming months.
