A Glove Story
Glove is the sonic alignment of artists Slosilver and Stephanie Finegan.
Now is the time for Glove. Glove is the time for now. And so, from one sleepy jam, 12 songs were born, fully formed.
Listed as Best New Band of 2019 by HeraSays and Louder Than War.
"When you have been to thousands of gigs but still retain the hunger for the new, a rare WTF moment is worth a million dollars.
Every now and then, at one of these music showcase events, you see band that changes your life.
A mesmerising, talismanic piece of magic that is beyond.
Glove are that band.
Two wild painted women who turn music inside out and reinvent the wheel.
We walk into the back room of one pub to see our first band and our minds are blown by Glove – nothing is going to match these two wired women who are oozing art, poetry and a musical brilliance that sets your mind racing and your heart pounding.
Theres is a stripped down basic sound – rhythm comes from a pounding tom tom played against a bass or in other songs a scratchy guitar. It’s pounding and highly effective – most of the songs are given a running bass line backbone and the minimalistic no wave combination is perfect for the poetry in motion of the vocals that switch between volumes of wild eyed beat poetry and stunningly sung vocal lines.
The songs follow no rules. There are no reference pints. It’s uttley original. You type out words like Patti Smith or The Slits but that’s lazy old man thinking.
Glove are the here and now.
Glove are the future.
They take these snips and shards of sound and create their own future. Their eyes are painted blue with thick make up. They are tribal and wild. They are dancing on the bones of rock N roll. Wild poets. Shamanic dancers with a new beat that you can dance to as well and they somehow turn the room of random punters into an ecstatic party with a brand new sound.
Glove are going to make a lot of noise.
Get into them now before everyone else does!" Louder Than War
"I quoted on my Instagram that my love for Glove has no boundaries, and I’d happily carve that statement into the side of a mountain after seeing their portrayal of life, the universe and everything this evening. Their minimalist and cannibalistic performance displays unadulterated passion for what they do… From primeval chanting to syllabic ranting, it’s all from the heart, and those two hearts are pounding like the floor tom they smash. The chop-sing crowd soon stop and turn and stare; some are open jawed watching in wonderment as Glove paint the prettiest yet most bizarre yet most brilliant musical picture of the weekend."
