Spit-balling into the heart of the Norwich music scene from soon-to-be demolished UEA student digs, junkedelic misfits Gladboy started out as a loud, energetic and assured 3 piece who in less than a year, cemented their place as one of Norwich's most intriguing upcoming bands - garnering support slots with The Regrettes, Willie J Healey and L.A.
glam rock provocateurs, Starcrawler. Expanding to a 5 piece through the addition of both synth and tambourine, the band continued to refine and texture the noise that overwhelmed earlier incarnations and created a buzz centred around camp, theatrical and fun performances that range from blistering cacophonies of noise to gigs that encourage whole audiences to sit down. No words showcase this better than Outline's review stating: 'This is art-pop – think Bowie, early Talking Heads or Pulp – that veers into psych and dreampop but always has a roughness and bite that gives it an edge.'
The band's latest EP, Egopushin' sees their boldest effort at recreating their bombastic live sound on record. Ranging from kosmiche Motorik rhythms to brown acid psychedelia that seamlessly blends into Linda Perhacs inspired soundscapes - the band's vast array of influences is matched with surreal lyrical wit that ranges from songs about an illegitimate relationship with an older woman to dream sequences about cannibalism involving psychobilly legend Hasil Adkins.
Gladboy are not the band humanity deserve, but very much the band humanity needs.
