WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM THE GLARES

Imagine an instant guitar riff, a complimenting drum riff and vocals that remind you of Morrissey; that was my first impression.

However, it just gets better.

Edinburgh-based ‘The Glares’ describe themselves on Instagram as “Frequent deniers of being Indie.” and “Providers of groove-filled RnR” which, they’re not wrong.

‘Cocaine Jane’ is the perfect level of heavy backing track and soft vocals, but in the way that it should be done, not overpowering each other.

Then at around 40 seconds in, it gets turned up a notch and it turns a bit rockier, teases you, then simmers a bit before going into a heavier chorus.

It keeps you in suspense almost.

Imagine you’re watching a series or a film and the lead character is having a bit of an epiphany or they are going through change, this would be the backing track.

Even more so, halfway through, it changes tone with a funky backing track before switching back to the original, which leads up to a big finish.

The lyrics sound meaningful, however, you really have to listen to them to understand, to me though, that adds to the intensity and the magic of this track.

The artwork is also stunning, it’s simple but it perfectly keeps in theme with the single, it’s eye-catching and the colours are perfect.

Overall, a solid addition to your playlist, I’m looking forward to seeing what comes next…
