Tender Glue is a brilliant clash of twang, grit and pop, delivering as many dirty guitar lines and perfectly sparse moments as clever vocals and catchy melodies. To celebrate the recent release of Steady Light, Tender Glue’s debut album, we asked for a playlist of songs that helped to define the record’s sound. Enjoy below, and be sure to check out Steady Light above!
Brooklyn’s Tender Glue premieres ‘Goodbye Bushwick’ and plays The City Reliquary on 8/26
Today, we are premiering Brooklyn indie-folk act Tender Glue latest single “Goodbye Bushwick” (streaming below) off forthcoming new album ‘Steady Light.’ Sounding out curling atmospherics that recall Kurt Vile’s great 2011 release ‘Smoke Ring from My Halo” from a few years back, the guitar-based track is also, impressively, a poetic paean of days gone by in the tradition of none other than Dylan or Cohen.
Brooklyn-based indie artist Tender Glue is releasing a new album Steady Light later this month. We’re excited to be premiering “West” right here on GroundSounds. The song confidently sways and flows at an ambling pace. The soulful vocals and contemplative vibe prove to be particularly effective at evoking emotion from the listener.
TENDER GLUE KEEP IT REAL WITH NEW TRACK ‘HOPE STREET’
Brooklyn’s up-and-coming Tender Glue are right up your alley if you like strum-heavy acoustic melodies and smooth, honest vocals. We sure do, and that’s why we’re proud to premiere their brand new single, “Hope Street,” today.
Enter Tender Glue, a man’s world that is made up of Tom Gluewicki and his journey to NYC. Tom was originally born and raised in Poland and later moved to New York in 2002, he explains his first encounter with playing music when he was twelve years old after he had fixed a broken guitar that his brother brought home. Tender Glue’s musical genres include some elements of post punk, combined with acoustic and lo-fi sounds. “Dirty Friends” is off his last EP Wait For Steady Light, though the project is announcing a new LP called Steady Light, being released later this summer, August 26, 2016.
The latest from this NYC based bedroom artist is a video for “Dirty Friends” featuring Gluewicki and toy robots taking over New York! Behold! As they zip fearlessly off train lines and alley ways. This video combines some of the most visually nuanced layering i’ve seen in a bit. From photos randomly taking up portions of the screen to multiple videos creating a tapestry of images.
