Looking Through The Shades, is Glitterer's debut full-length album, featuring Ned Russin, bassist/vocalist of Title Fight. Proceeded by two self-released EPs where Russin played every instrument and note, Looking Through The Shades represents the project's first collaborative effort. Now there are live drums (twin-brother Ben did the honours) and dopamine-releasing fuzzy guitars to go with the synths, the bass, and the voice.
Now there's a full 14-song tracklist to luxuriate in. Produced by Alex Giannascoli (better known as (Sandy) Alex G) and Arthur Rizk (Code Orange, Power Trip, Sumerlands) the album delivers Glitterer's best-yet sonics and songs. From the saturated distortion of the opener, »The Race« (»I wish I could look at your life and know it's mine«), through the road-weary »1001« (»I sang 1,000 songs / didn't want to sing again«) and the vox-and-bass-only Side B outlier »The News« (»I used to be original«), the listener is simultaneously satiated and left wanting more.
