GLOO Announce Debut Album ‘A PATHETIC YOUTH’ Due 6th July

GlooSussex punks GLOO are set to make a grand entrance with debut album A PATHETIC YOUTH on 6th July. To mark the occasion, the band have released new video HOLIDAY.

Drummer Mark Harfield comments, “Sticking true to our guns in true Littlehampton style, we wanted the video to be cheesy and home video-esque. It was shot around where all three of us live and took about three hours. Sonny, our friend, was kind enough to follow us around with my iPhone for the day and record us doing stupid sh*t – he even had to pedalo on his own to film us on our boat! We wanted it to look grey and dingy, and just to our luck it did!

A product of their fading seaside resort hometown, Littlehampton (which features in the HOLIDAY video), GLOO create high octane and abrasive sounds, pulsing with infectious melodies. GLOO adhere to provide a sense of relief from modern life’s struggles – the fantasy of quitting a dead end and mundane nine-to-five job, the aspiration to escape small town life and see the world – whilst sinking a few pints with you in the process.

Forthcoming debut album A PATHETIC YOUTH was recorded in Derry (Northern Island), at Smalltown American Studios.

Smalltown asked if we had an album to record, to which we said yes”, explains Mark, “in reality we only had about five or six tracks ready. We were working round the clock to have an album’s worth of tracks ready ahead of our flight! To be honest, the pressure forced out some serious bangers. If we had loads of time to mess about with ideas we would have ruined a few songs!
