A Glove Story
Glove is collaboration between artists Stephanie Finegan and Slosilver.
“A Glove gig is a difficult thing to comprehend, let alone describe. Their music is a powerful fusion of PJ Harvey and The White Stripes with lush, deeply layered vocals and instantly memorable hooks - their performances though, transcend comparison. It’s a certainly a journey, at times wild and raving, at others fragile and intimate. A bit like having a wild fling with that punk girl at school you always had a crush on - except now she’s bi-polar and there’s two of them. It’s an emotional thing. Expect to feel sexy, doe eyed they will lure you in with the promise of a kiss, expect to feel pain, they will kick you away and wolf howl to the heavens as they trash the stage.” (Watoo 2018)
“A glove is an object of protection. An item we choose to wear to safeguard the sensitivity of our hands against the raw harshness of the world. It is through our hands we make sense of the world and come to know it intimately. We often say seeing is believing, but this is not true. Sight is a sense that can be easily deceived but the intimacy of touch speaks straight to our soul. It is unmediated. Directly connected to our PIP of being, our Precious Interstice of Presence in which is Ignited the Pyre of Infinite Potential. Glove is also a band, and as any good glove ought to be, this Glove is tough! Weathered and worn by an often cruel and tormenting world, but by no means are they weary. Their music commands an enduring and powerful belligerence in defiance of the ways the world might wear us down. But contained beneath that, aches the delicate vulnerability of two souls who see the world with infinite and ancient mystery. A perfect collision of fire and fury underpinned by an elegant delicacy of vibrant melodie. Performative art is an armour we wear to expose that within in us which is deeply woundable without risk of injury. Glove are both a powerful armour and an achingly sensitive wound. A powerful paradox of motivating forces reside beneath this musical outfit. Their music will protect you in moments of need and enliven your soul to meet impossible odds. In short, this glove wants to clothe you, put your fingers in and come home, because all you need is Glove!” (Skin Walker 2018)
