We’ve been keeping a close eye on Glom – ICYMI, we’ve previously featured their songs “Fungus,” “Gre[a]y,” and “Again,” because they are genuinely an excellent act. They’re back with yet another banger, this time called “I Wanted The Real Thing.” The Brooklyn alt-rockers sure know how to write a guitar riff – with touches of psychedelia and synth pop and carried by a strong falsetto croon, “Real Thing” fits in perfectly with their technicolor brand of indie rock. They get existential here – here’s a quote from the band explaining their approach:
“The line ‘I want to talk with god…’ It speaks to this sense of wanting to figure out, especially right now, what the hell is really going on. Why are things so messed up? Like, who’s the manager here? Who can we talk to to figure things out on a metaphysical level?’
