Glis - Apocalypse Parties
EBM, Futurepop Glis is an Electronic/Industrial music project founded in 2001 by Shaun Frandsen. Apocalypse Parties is a 2-track digital single and first release since 'A shot and a bassline' in 2008. Rotersand's Krischan Wesenberg contributes additional sounds and fx and Gabriel Shaw plays guitar on the single. The single is being sold to us as groovy and infectious dance floor fodder, with an early WaxTrax electro / industrial feel and a touch of melodic modernity.

Apocalypse Parties starts with a sample but builds up quickly into what must be a club hit. A pulsing trance like beat, very uplifting anyway to say the least, with some melodic pounding and even more melodic synth lines to back it up and great bass. Without doubt a club orientated floor filler first class. It does feature vocals which are good enough but really are secondary to the great music, although the more I have played it the more I have sung along. You can't fail to lose yourself on the dance floor with this one.

Great death but strikingly beautiful sounding melodic synths greet us in "Death By Misadventure". Then in complete contrast the winds blows up and we are moving right back on that floor. It's fully charged, and as it pounds along this time the vocals and chorus are much more noticeable and add a lot to the proceedings. 'It's the way we want it', I am sure of that, another club hit for definite.

It is infectious dance floor fodder and I definitely want it in my collection. Also if this single is supposed to get us wanting for more in the form of the forthcoming full album entitled 'Phoenix', then it is also a great success on that score. As far as I can ascertain however, no release date has yet been set.
