Piece Of The Indestructible
Glass Air Records
With their new EP Piece of the Indestructible, The Glitch Mob has taken a route that is quite different from today’s prototypical EDM artists in the industry. Forgoing strong bass and powerful drops, they have instead decided to retain a consistent, pulsating sound that is present in each track. This behaviour is not out of the ordinary for them; they haven’t done anything particularly new or experimental with the sound they are working with on these latest tracks, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. The Glitch Mob seems to know what their sound is and retains a sort of comfort and stability through producing music that is in exactly their preferred style.
The whole EP, when listened to all the way through, will take you on a journey, providing an incredibly holistic experience. While two out of the three tracks on the EP are slightly more downtempo than the first – and arguably most infectious – track, “Head Full of Shadows,” all three do seem to work together well.
While their take on electronic music may not be for everyone, this doesn’t seem to be a problem for them. Much like the group themselves, their fans expect this kind of sound and consistency from them, and that particular sound and consistency is dependably delivered on Piece of the Indestructible.
