Born and raised on the bleakest shores of Denmark, Gløde founder and singer Simon Glöde has always drawn inspiration from the ever-present sand dunes of his birthplace, as well
as the ocean, and it is no surprise that his velvety voice carries a hint of the sea in its yearning intensity.
Meanwhile, his passionate yet sensitive songs are redolent of talents as diverse as Richard Hawley and Coldplay, allied to a folk-rock sensibility akin to Sufjan Stevens or even Leonard Cohen, although Gløde is more likely to acknowledge his influence of Nick Cave, Jeff Buckley, Elbow, Eddie Vedder and Fink on his songwriting.
Relocating to Hamburg in 2014, Gløde has over time shanghaied a number of well-known faces on the local
music scene into joining him on his musical journey, settling on his own surname for the moniker given to his quintet of salty dogs.
The band's debut album, entitled ‘Ø’ (Danish for ‘island’), was recorded pre-dominantly ‘live’ on an old country estate on the Danish coast. An eminently stylish voyage, it operates in a wide bandwidth, drifting from hopeful melancholy to deep blue ease. The influence of Hamburg, its port, and the nightlife of its infamous St. Pauli district hangs heavy over Gløde's lyrics.
