The Talking Tears – “Glue”


The new album from one-man band The Talking Tears, Glam is an engrossing, darkly reverberating success that blends synth-pop, post-punk, and other styles. The uniquely hypnotic soundscapes throughout range from sludgy, grungy rockers like “Hey” to dark synth-forward pieces like “Glue,” which resembles a wonderful cross of The Fall and John Maus. Specifically, the vibes are lovably reminiscent of The Fall’s “(Jung Nev’s) Antidotes.” Another success, “Gloom,” shows a more lo-fi singer/songwriter approach, succeeding equally well.
