The Globes

Stay Awake

From the album:

bark110: The Globes / Future Self
  • Stay Awake

The Globes transform complexity into something accessible on this impressive debut. If the best comparison is Radiohead that is because both bands are so ready to fracture time signatures and chord structures, so that the line you hear is subtly, intriguingly different from what you expect. Future Self is smoothly self-assured as it balances on a tightrope. The Globes put their best pop moves up front, but then, "Ghost"'s jittery guitar riff could have been pulled off a latter-day Tortoise album. There is abstraction here, but also sheer lyrical gorgeousness. BLURT
