The band are teasing their upcoming second album.



Gloo
have dropped a brand new track, and it's a bit of a breezy banger. 

'Down' combines some spiky riffing and psychedelic builds with a harsh vocal display to create a new alternative break-up anthem for the forlorn among you. Though there's a positivity glistening within the cracks.

Let Thomas Harfield explain:

"Yes, it's another break-up song, but this is a new thing for Gloo... 'Down' is based around an experience that really shook me, and coming to terms with the reality of being alone again after a long term relationship. Ultimately, the song is about trying to be happy in yourself. The track was almost deleted from my voice memos until we played the riff as a band, immediately gaining the uplifting feel the song needed. It's Gloo, whilst avoiding any depressing vibes wherever possible, and stood out while we were recording... hearing it back was our first glimpse at how good the session was going to be."

Here we go:



The track is set to appear on the band's upcoming second album, which is scheduled for release in the summer. 

It follows on from 'Work So Hard' which was released at the end of last year and sounds like this:



The record will serve as a follow-up to 2019's 'A Pathetic Youth', which included 'Force You':

That sounds like this:
