The French band, Gloria, is back after their 2016 release “In Excelsis Stereo”. If you’re familiar with the band, the new six-track recording “Oîdophon Echoram” will no doubt be in line with expectations. It’s true that the group is to some extent framed by psych-garage, but that seems a bit too narrow. In fact, the group is quite eclectic, and pinning them down one way or another doesn’t seem entirely just. Okay, go with psych-garage, but you can’t help but pick up on the texture. Moreover, the female vocals make it hard not to think back to pop “girl groups” from the 80’s and the early ’90s. Have a look and listen to “Heavy” which is the lead track from “Oîdophon Echoram”. You’ll have a pretty good sense for what to expect from the rest of the album. Check out Gloria. It’s definitely worth your time to have a listen.
