SONG PICK: VLURE – Heartbeat
On the heels of announcing their upcoming debut EP Euphoria, Glasgow indie-rockers VLURE release the hard-hitting and utterly fascinating “Heartbeat.” Their sound shows a diverse range of influences: from German krautrock over post-punk to electronic dance music with hypnotizing hooks. Ultimately though, this emerging five-piece is about to create their very own niche, music that makes you feel everything but indifference.
Asked about “Heartbeat,” VLURE explain:
It starts on the tips of your fingers and soles of your feet. A faint pulsing energy as the anticipation builds, it’s warm and the dense air adds to the atmosphere. Condensation blurs and streaks the light, you only catch snippets of movements when silhouettes briefly light up to show you the full figure. You do not want the night to end. Take it all in. This is opulence, this is escapism.
Mesmerized by “Heartbeat,” we explored VLURE a bit further and came across their cinematic and absolutely phenomenal live video “Desire,” filmed in their studio space. We highly recommend checking out this video too, before or after you listen to “Heartbeat,” our Song Pick of the Day:
Euphoria is out on 14/01/2022 on So Young Records. Connect with VLURE on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and add “Heartbeat” to your playlist as we are adding it to our #glamglarepick playlist on Spotify and AppleMusic:
