Returning to the jangly world of G-Oz-Guitar, we dive into the second album from Sydney-siders Glide.
The album is actually best when the pace slows a little and the vocals push forward in the mix. William Arthur’s voice works well when it peaks and troughs in counterpoint to the crashing drum.
Here’s a thoroughly uninteresting visual capture of the strongest song on this album:
Ripped and Stripped is similarly structured with what I would call power rhyming (for I feel like coining almost meaningless phrases today) on the verses.
I am thoroughly enjoying the “-15 years or so” setting on the time machine these Glide albums represent. The world seems an exciting place (if somewhat more Anglophile). I feel a little excited by the rise of Cool Brittania and jealous of Sydney’s vibrant music scene!! (what naïve days they were!).
