Brooklyn based Glom offers ‘Matches’, the second single from their sophomore LP ‘Merit’ due out in the Fall. ‘Matches’ is about the struggle in differentiating between personal growth and what others want you to be – allowing self-doubt and anxiety to dictate changes in hopes that it will make yourself more desirable.
‘Matches’ is a crescendo to the end, building tension through heavy guitar and drums and finally releasing into a guitar solo accented by bright synths.
The single release continues an artistic partnership between Rachel Hayden, Slow Process and Dodge 112, who are all cornerstones of Glom’s deeply intertwined creative community. Rachel Hayden, an emerging artist, has made all of the artwork for the record and the band plans to collaborate on an upcoming collection from clothing brand Slow Process – linked to Merit – that would tie all three disciplines together.
Glom is a classic alt-rock inspired, fuzzy alt-rock act. The group started when childhood friends Sean Dunnevant, Peter Beiser, Sahil Ansari, and Jonathan Harwood got together in high school to play Beatles and Strokes covers.
