POST WAR GLAMOUR GIRLS – Light Bulb

Post War Glamour Girls is a new sonic message from Leeds, UK, that has already gained fan support and successfully performed on popular British stages. This four-piece band developed exciting post rock sound which is dark, melodic and disturbing.
‘Light Bulb’ is a track from their debut album called Pink Fur to be released on February 14. This track starts with melodic, soulful story telling passage and then bursts into a distorted refrain. Rough, restricted rhythm and expressive hoarse declamation lift ‘Light Bulb’ to the top of low-mood ballads in contemporary indie music.
Post War Glamour Girls are brilliant in recreating the sense of depressive loneliness and desperate desire for breakthrough to the bright side by means of their powerful music. They are energetic enough to make the audience co-suffer along with the lead vocals and the melodic turns. Also, they are intelligent enough to keep the destructive and dark messages of such music within the reasonable borders.
Not a highly recommended present for Valentine’s Day since it won’t provide you a ‘happy to be together’ mood, although a great gift if your partner is fond of Nick Cave type of music. Also, save the date for PWGG show in Leeds on February 13 or, alternatively, February 14 in London. Or at least check the atmospheric black-and-white video for ‘Light Bulb’.
