Glades To Love You CD

 

 

 

Sydney based alternative-pop trio GLADES combines atmospheric synthscapes, reverb-laden guitars, with complex electronic pop beats. Multi-instrumentalists Cameron Robertson and Joseph Wenceslao formed their musical bond writing and producing artists from home, later adding vocalist, Karina Wykes to form Glades. The trio met during their high school years and still write, produce and perform all their own music. 

The band will release their debut album TO LOVE TOU which will be supported by a national headline tour.

Following the success of their sell-out Australian national tour in May as well as tours with the LANY and Clean Bandit, the trio have spent the last few months in the U.S. putting the finishing touches on their debut album. TO LOVE YOU, includes breakout single Drive and more recent singles Do Right, Not About You and Eyes Wide Shut.

Glades first attracted widespread attention in 2016 after the release of their track Drive, which has since attracted 40 million streams. They also feature on FEKI’S single Love You Better. The band’s more recent single ‘Do Right’ is ARIA gold, having achieved over 60 million streams to date.

The group have amassed a staggering 170 million total streams and have an audience of over 1.5 million monthly Spotify subscribers.

They have appeared in Global Spotify Charts, Global Viral charts, Top 40 Australia and have secured #1 most played at Triple J on multiple occasions.

The release of TO LOVE YOU and NATIONAL HEADLINE TOUR will consolidate the past 2 years of unprecedented success for GLADES. With the inclusion of previous singles and 7 brand new tracks, all produced in house, the album will showcase their unequivocal talent.



Review of Glades - To Love You by Thomas Bleach



It’s not often that you find a debut album full of confidence and raw energy but that’s exactly what Glades deliver on their first full length offering. ‘To Love You’ is a bold and bright collection of harmonic synths layered with vulnerable storytelling and slick hooks. From a first listen you will be hooked by their upbeat production that perfectly complaints their, at times, emotional delivery. Album opener ‘Nervous Energy’ perfectly embodies their obvious nerves about finally having this collection of 11 tracks out in the world. But their polished delivery will have you instantly bopping along to the pulsating synths and singing along to their quotable hooks. From there the album dives into what feels like a greatest hits territory with the anthemic singles ‘Do Right’, ‘Not About You’, ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ and Drive’ which have bold and euphoric hooks that you can’t help but love. Even though these songs have been thrashed to death on streaming services and radio stations alike, it still feels like the first time, every time you listen to them because they are THAT good. With high expectations set ’80 Miles’ exceeds everything with one of the boldest hooks on the whole album. This groovy track will become an absolute fan favourite in their energetic live show and is an obvious choice for their next single. From there, the album continues to deliver slick and groovy synths on the smooth ‘Sweetheart’, ‘Neon Buzz’ and ‘Porcelain’ before they get really sentimental. Album closers ‘Better Love’ and ‘Through To You’ are reflective journeys of understanding that you need to be there for people during their low times and accepting the help of other people when you’re going through hardships. It’s a simple and hard understanding that a lot of people struggle with. But they create these low-key and beautiful pop moments feel so intimate and special. It really is the perfect way to finish an album that is so upbeat and bright because it shows another side to the band that some people may have no seen before. Because even though the album is painted with glossy synths, the whole record is deep and vulnerable but these two tracks just show it more abruptly. It truly is a fitting way for them to wrap up this first full collection of tracks that show an impressive growth from their humble beginnings.
