After stepping out with his unapologetically robust debut single ‘The Party‘, Melbourne-based artist glu returns for a contrasting sophomore record titled ‘Tokyo‘ which opts to embrace the poignant aftermath that follows.
Beginning with the gloomy hush of rainfall on a quiet stretch of sidewalk, the track opens with a sinister synth which swells into a wavy, spoken-word verse reminiscent to the likes of Swedish icon Yung Lean.
Lyrically the content and themes in ‘Tokyo‘ reflect glu’s desire to feel something, even if an intoxicating substance is at the forefront. Reflective of being without serotonin and encompassing the hollow void of a comedown, the lyrics flow effortlessly with a soft and fragile cadence.
Looking forward, glu is gearing up to release his debut album (TBA) and also has his heart set on performing live later in the year. Stay posted!
