Glove are a new exciting four-piece primitive American rock n’ roll band hailing from Tampa, Florida. They’re young, got bite, got soul and are a gang of new traditionalists making music which straddles both punk and proto-rock. They’re definitely a band with synths, but not a synth-band. Let’s get that straight. I hear classic influences creeping in from the likes of Gary Numan, New Order, The b-52s, Devo, Talking Heads, Can, Neu!, and The The. Cold in procedure and woke on lyrics. All in the mix are some zesty angular guitars with catchy riffs, steady snare crack beat bumping and that kraut-rock driven bass happening. oh, and you can dance to it.
Glove was formed only last year by Rod Woolf and Brie Denicourt. Along with Michelle Primiani and Justin Burns, they’ve made some serious noise in a relatively short time. The band’s third show ever was a tour kick-off, since then they’ve completed seven US tours, released their debut single “Pleasure Intellect” (which has garnered over 100,000 streams on Spotify) and managed to play shows with a gaggle of peers including; Cosmonauts, Omni, The Coathangers, The Growlers, The Nude Party, Surfbort, LA Witch, Mattiel.
