Sussex trio GLOO hve recently released their EP Stop And Stare. The band released the title track earlier this year, of which drummer Mark Harfield explains, "I see it as a nod to all things social media and not being able to do anything without someone watching".
Cutting their teeth last year with debut album A Pathetic Youth (KKKK - Kerrang!), GLOO blur the lines between grunge and punk, belting out contagious choruses. A product of their fading seaside resort hometown, Littlehampton, GLOO adhere to provide a sense of relief from modern life’s struggles
EP Stop And Stare takes that blueprint to the next level. Recorded "five minutes down the road " at Ford Lane Studios, it retains the band's DIY ethos, peppered with GLOO's self-aware and fully embraced Jekyll & Hyde spirit. "We are just three normal guys who love making a racket for people who love rackets", smiles Mark, "Everyone has a different part of their personality that they’re afraid of letting out. Fortunately for us three, we all have the same weird part. that’s GLOO".
GLOO have notched up plaudits from BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing, Kerrang! Radio & Magazine and Amazing Radio, and are regulars on the UK live circuit - with highlights including 2000 Trees, support to Queen Kwong and Demob Happy.
