Littlehampton Punks GLOO Release New Single ‘Hit It’

Littlehampton Punks GLOO Release New Single ‘Hit It’

GlooKicking off 2018 as they mean to go on, Littlehampton trio GLOO are pleased to reveal yet another roaring new single ‘Hit It’, which is out now via all good digital retailers and streaming platforms through their own DIY label Dropping Bags Records.

There will also be a limited run of physical copies available from the band’s music glue site: https://www.musicglue.com/gloo

Commenting on the new single, the band said: “This track was written about not wanting to have your life shaped by the ideas or advice given to you by your parents, rather making your own choices, even if they turn out to be shit. The fuck ups are the fun bit, so let us fuck up, basically.”

Previous single ‘Force You’ crashed into Spotify UK’s official #Punked playlist, with support from the likes of UPSET Magazine, Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing, Kerrang! Radio, The Unsigned Guide and Punktastic.

The trio are now ramping up anticipation for their first full length release, details of which will be revealed later this year.

Further tour dates + new music TBA

See GLOO live:

18.01.18 – Hope & Ruin, Brighton
02.02.18 – The Crown, Littlehampton
03.02.18 – Portsmouth – Icebreaker Festival

 

 

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.

Formed only 6 short months ago 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 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 – having quickly gathered together a strong core fan base with hundreds of followers across their social media, gloo have their eyes firmly set on breaking out of the drudgery they were born form over the coming months.
