Included in the seizmic conundrum that is the album ‘Merit’, the gleeful and wonderful band, Glom, tackles issues in that rock tactic that is so burdening-ly loving and thoughtful.
‘Merit’, the sophomore installment from DC bred, Brooklyn based band Glom, was written in the aftermath of an anxious and deeply depressive winter for Sean Dunnevant, the songwriter for nine of the ten songs on the record.
The chorus of the title track is a discussion regarding the subconscious dissonance growing up between two vastly different cultures – his mother an immigrant from the Philippines and his father a southern Baptist minister.
Glom is a classic alt-rock inspired, fuzzy alt-rock act.
The group started Sean Dunnevant, Peter Beiser, Sahil Ansari, and Jonathan Harwood got together in high school to play Beatles and Strokes covers. Jordan Wolff and Jonathan Crandall completes to make Glom what it is.
