WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM GLIDER – SUMMERFACE

As spring rolls in, bands everywhere tune their music to the sounds of a fresh season. More optimistic melodies emerge from the dregs of winter to uplift us for this new phase.

Berlin outfit Glider is grabbing this change by the horns with their newest single Summerface, which drops on 4th April along with its B-side Sweetness.

Summerface begins with a muffled arrangement of askew guitar melodies and mid-tempo drums. Even before the vocals come in, it feels like a hot and hazy day at the height of summer. The kind of day when the sun’s intensity has your clothes stuck to you like a second skin, and there’s little in the world to worry about.

As the verse takes hold, prosodic lyrics in that same stereo tone reinforce the mood; just a summer day in my neighbourhood/so lost you can taste it. A melodic bassline anchors in the accompaniment and thickens out the tune.

It trundles on, not fading but not growing, just moving forward in the fuzzy resonance from verse to chorus and round again. Towards the end, dual vocals overlap before the band fades out into the thick atmosphere.

I can hear this song frequenting the Summer playlists of many. It’s calm, easy on the ear, and paints a rosy picture.
