What a fitting lead single for Boston’s Looking Glass War! Made up of members of Parlour Bells, The Easy Reasons, Strangeways, and The Rationales to name a few, Looking Glass War is, ahem, looking to make a lasting and instant impact as they get ready to release their debut single ahead of a slew of new music which will eventually make up an EP due later in 2023.
Holograms meets Editors meets Grave Pleasures meets The Darkness. Kinda get what we’re throwing down? What Looking Glass Was has conjured into this three and a half minute blast of infectious music is some of the very best Post-Rawk in recent years. The guitars from Pete Zeigler immediately hearken back to the late ’70’s/early ’80’s birth of that aforementioned genre while the rousing rotund rhythmic synchronicity from drummer Tony Porter and bassist Mike Ackley easily brings early Killing Joke or U2 to mind. Add the sultry commanding croon from Goddamn Glenn on top of it all and it’s like the cherry on top of a delicious modern Post-Rawk sundae!
“Arrive!”, ahem, arrives (Sorry!) on July 14th. Head here to stay up-to-date on when you can pre-order and pre-save the new track and for all the latest news and clues from Looking Glass War, follow them across the information superhighway when you click here or here.
