Australia’s The Glorious are back with a new single titled “Meteorite,”the follow up to the lush and melancholic “Last Game of the Season.” C0-produced by founder Dave Mather and long-time collaborator Julian Mendelsohn (Paul McCartney, Kate Bush), we are pleased to team up with the band for the premiere of the single.
The current lineup consists of founders Mather (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Dan Gard’ner (drums, vocals, percussion) and Joel Loukes (bass). It’s another slice of immaculately crafted vintage pop—a gentle midtempo groove crowned with a wash of lush strings courtesy of frequent collaborator Michael Edwards. According to lead singer Dave Mather, “Meteorite” is inspired by the band’s evolution and attaining a growing level of success and accomplishment with each album and tour.
“‘I filtered the themes through our journey as a band, especially the recent period where we had some success and traveled to LA after a long period of toil. The last part of the song is specifically about this trip: “Moving west to east, when we were Kings, going like a meteorite.”
