Falling - 2013

Glorie - 2011

Origin Point:
United States

Sounds Like:
Post Rock, Instrumental, Ambient, Cinematic, Neoclassical

Memphis, Tennessee isn't exactly a hotbed of post-rock talent, but Glorie bucks the trend in quite spectacular fashion. Their predominantly string and key-led sound has an impressive sense of urgency which is reflected in the comparatively short running times of their tracks, particularly evident in their latest release. A consistently impressive collective, well-worth checking out - for those who absolutely require a starting point, try Run Away from Falling.

To listen to their music, simply click on the album covers to be taken to their respective pages.

Now, I know the discussion of music can be an emotionally charged subject for some people, but I'm not claiming that anything is better than anything else. This is no more than a soap-box for me to promote music that I enjoy; maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. That's fine.

If you've any recommendations based on this artist, or wish to promote some music that you yourself enjoy, please do so in the comments. Maybe I'll end up enjoying something enough to feature it myself.
