Glove, Stevie, Black Surfer
Add to Calendar
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 five US tours, released their debut single “Pleasure Intellect” (which has garnered over 88,000 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. In November they hit the studio to make it all real by recording their debut full length album. That’ll be out next year.

North Carolina trio Stevie plays garage pop seized by heartbreak, and other delights. They bring a floral edge to their retro-tinged, lofi bops. The band (Lindsey Sprague, Amethyst White, and Chesley Kalnen) released their first single “None of my Business” in September 2018, and will record their first full-length album in Spring 2019.
