GLITTER: Ancient Rome: LP

Apr 29, 2016

This record contains ten songs of primarily guitar based indie pop with deep-rooted ‘80s influences. I’m a big fan of many of the bands from the infamous ‘80s UK C86 Scene, and while Glitter seems like they likely draw influence from this era, I feel like there is something missing here preventing me from really making that link. The contemporary band Literature is a good comparison and reference point seeing as both bands seem like-minded, both are from Philadelphia, and both sound quite similar at times, but Literature really seem have a spring in their step and an upbeat demeanor that Glitter often seems to lack.
