The three members are all very invested in various other musical projects, and when they come together as The Glitch Mob, you can hear influences from all kinds of musical genres and experiences. The album quickly reached #1 on the iTunes electronic charts based on presales alone.
Back in December, they premiered a music video and teaser for the rest of the album. “Can’t Kill us.” The song truly exemplifies the Glitch Mob sound which led them on their own headlining tour, and put them on top of a whole lot of music festival lineups. I like to call it, chaos with a purpose. “Can’t Kill us” is the most ‘throwback’ sounding song on the album.
As you can guess, three years can do a lot to an artist musically and their evolution is represented musically with new rhythms, tempos and sounds. Boreta explained, “”If our last album was introverted, then the new one is definitely extroverted.”
In an age of 2-4 track EPs, and free tracks being pumped out onto Soundcloud daily, Glitch Mob makes their triumphant return with a 10 track album with each track being no less than 4 minutes long. Their signature booming bass drum is prevalent through their whole album, and I cannot wait to hear some of these songs out live. The inclusion of collaborations with vocal artists on the album. Most of the vocal parts in the new album serve as these beautiful moments on an album focused on controlled chaos. The vocal interlude in “Becoming Harmonious” by Metal Mother will have you swaying before you embark on more of your Glitch Mob led, drum, bass and breakbeat journey.
All in all, the album still screams “Glitch Mob.” It will remind many of you why you fell in love with The Glitch Mob in the first place and give you brand new reasons you have never heard before. It combines so many different musical aspects you will hear, off-tempo break beat crunches, a throbbing bass drum, and innovative ways of including live instruments.
