Gliss on tour

As they continue to topple alternative specialty radio charts, Los Angeles trio, Gliss, is pleased to release a live session video of their track "Into The Water." This is the first in a series of five acoustic videos the band will be releasing via Under The Radar Magazine every Monday over the next five weeks. According to the band, the videos were "filmed on a cold and rainy California day far up in the mountains," and the chilled mood is evident through the cascading images and sounds. Gliss is currently in the midst of their Monday February Residency at Los Globos in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, see dates below. Their newest album, Langsom Dans, was recently released via Modern Outsider.

Danish/American band Gliss makes a huge departure from their old sound on the new recordLangsom Dans which is gathering comparisons to Beach House, Crystal Castles and Lower Dens. The LA based trio, consisting of Victoria Cecilia, Martin Klingman and David Reiss, pour their collective musical imaginations into recording timeless art pop with a precise Scandinavian texture that steps away from their previous work. The 12-track LP features heavy synths and electronic beats with Danish expatriate, Victoria Cecilia, stepping into the role as lead singer. The passionate vocal harmonies dictate the recordings with stories of coming out of the darkness into a new life, bringing to mind The XX, Portishead and Depeche Mode.
