‘Breakin’ Out’ touches on many themes, primarily the importance of being in the moment, the right now. Life can be tricky. Life can dictate a narrative for you if you let it. Don’t let it! Observations are delivered with a wry smile and at times, lonesome clarity.
Recorded in ‘The Meadow’ in Wicklow by The Deaf Brothers at the beginning of 2016, this record is sure to enhance your summer. These nine new songs see Glimmermen expand on their core guitar, bass, and drums line-up, with brass arrangements that embellish the stripped-back sound of their critically acclaimed debut ‘I’m Dead’ (2013). The result is a more accessible album, while still retaining the distinctive cutting edge of their live shows.
Glimmermen take rock and roll back to its primitive core. having quickly earned a reputation for their intense live shows, the band (Gav Cowley - guitar, vocals, J. Bassetti - bass, Phil Murray - drums, Dave Prendergast - trumpet) released their debut EP “Satellite People” in 2012 with comparisons to Television, Pop Group and Mission of Burma. They followed up with their J.Robbins - recorded debut ‘I’m Dead’ in 2013. Since then, they have played shows up and down the country including festivals such as Electric Picnic.
‘Breaking’ Out’ will be available on vinyl LP, digital download and streaming.
Press for Glimmermen's 'Breakin' Out' LP
"Taut percussive shouty pop from the Dublin quartet, who spice a springy ambience and apocalyptic caveat with added brass stabs, that sees them homing in on the threes chords that would change the world. I'd say their gigs are a buzz." - Eamonn Carr - THE HERALD
"Amid the cracked grooves and blasts of brass, songs such as the excellent, evocative Ragged City paint a more reflective, downbeat picture... a concise collection, but there is plenty of eating and drinking in it" **** - Irish Times
Each of the release’s nine tracks threading together to form an effort where the major key and quietly emphatic cogitations on the everyday meld to form a refreshingly optimistic album bursting with real heart and instant, carefully-considered songwriting. - The Thin Air.net
