THE GLARES - CINNAMON GUM

WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM THE GLARES – CINNAMON GUM

Edinburgh-based band The Glares solidifies their place in the rock scene with their new single “Cinnamon Gum”. The song immediately opens with captivating and unusual guitar riffs, setting it apart from typical rock songs.

This unique feature immediately grabs our attention and makes us want to listen to more. In a way, it showcases the band’s innovative approach to their music. But that’s not all they are good at – they skillfully manage to maintain engagement throughout the track, with a climax midway, then a peaceful time, and another following display of guitar prowess.

Cinnamon Gum

“Cinnamon Gum” originated from a simple riff developed in a rehearsal space, evolving into a composition featuring various time signatures and a bass solo, despite initial opposition. This insight into the song’s creation process offers a glimpse into The Glares’ creative journey and their willingness to explore unconventional musical elements.

Thematically, “Cinnamon Gum” explores the consequences of being inebriated and making regrettable choices, a theme that resonates with the band’s style of storytelling. Or as the band likes to say “as all good songs are“.

Overall, if there were only two reasons why you should listen to the song, that would be the great guitar skills and the singer’s unique voice.

They are undoubtedly the strong points of “Cinnamon Gum” that make us keep yearning for more from the band. With its innovative approach to rock music and thematic depth, the track is a great addition to The Glares’s discography.
