“”Gleam” is being released as part of the 15th anniversary extended edition of the 2009 self-titled album. It was never released, so essentially a B-Side from that album. The accompanying music video, however, is brand new and features actors and a director all the same age Letting Up Despite Great Faults was 15 years ago. The music recalls a time when we all used to feel the most invincible and yet also the most vulnerable. The full anniversary edition will include more B-sides as well as demos, to be released 3/4/24.”
The band that I recently stumbled upon has been creating music since 2009, but it’s all new to me. I must say, their B-side track is a delightful surprise. It’s a fast-paced, high-energy dream pop that instantly transports me back to my early days when I was just beginning to explore the world of dreamy music. It takes me back to a time before I started blogging, when I was young and full of energy, with big hopes and dreams that were yet to be shattered. I was just eighteen when this band’s debut album came out, and it was like a breath of fresh air. Despite everything that has happened since then, one dream has stayed with me, and that’s my love for music. Ever since I was a teenager, I have been passionate about music, and it’s a dream that I’m still living today. There’s something magical about it that always keeps me going.
