The lead track from LUC’s new EP Glow is a real banger. It’s upbeat, fun, and blends a variety of musical styles and influences. It also shares a name with the EP, a title that seems to truly illuminate the feel for what is going on in the song.
The track (and the EP) blend a throwback alternative rock aesthetic reminiscent of bands like Garbage with modern electro and EDM, as well as a garage rock flair. The result is a sound the band calls “Garage-tronic”. Fans of everything from beautiful female led pop to the harsh electronic sounds of Nine Inch Nails may find LUC a welcome change up to what they’ve been hearing on the radio or seeing on their TVs.
Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
