Globally renowned electronic trio Boreta (Justin Boreta), edIT (Ed Ma), and Ooah (Joshua Mayer), aka The Glitch Mob, have dropped their eagerly anticipated album ‘See Without Eyes’ on their label Glass Air Records, available to purchase now.
The Los Angeles-based production trio has been captivating the masses for years with their distinct performance style and impeccable productions. Their last album ‘Love Death Immortality’ was a tremendous success and went to number one on the Billboard Independent Albums Chart in 2014. After a little time away from touring and releasing music, the pioneering trio is back and are sure to leave their mark once again, with the release of their newest creation, ‘See Without Eyes’.
Built with the precision that fans have come to know and love from The Glitch Mob, ‘See Without Eyes’ kicks off in spectacular fashion with the flamboyant cut ‘Enter Formless (Feat. Rituals of Mine)’. The track boasts an unforgettable synth line from the outset, setting the tone for the diverse and heavy hitting album.
’Keep On Breathing (Feat. Tula)’ is another head-turning addition; an inquisitive mix of pulsing bass drum and haunting synthesizers carry the track from the outset. Tula’s emotive vocals pair perfectly with the cut, leveling the track and acting as the antidote to the unabashed instrumental section. ‘Disintegrate Slowly’ ups the ante in the bass department, adding a resonating kick drum to the mix. A heavy saw lead enters the soundscape as we hear the production reach its apex, bringing the entire track together in perfect harmony. ‘I Could Be Anything (Feat. Elohim)’, which saw a release in early April along with a massive REZZ remix, commences with an arpeggiated side-chained lead that is tied over a 4/4 kick drum; creating the perfect stage for Elohim’s unmatched vocal performance. ‘Interbeing’ is a more down-tempo and inquisitive addition to The Glitch Mob’s admirable catalog, sure to diversify an already mind-blowing inventory of creations.
‘See Without Eyes’ is an ode to the group’s ability to generate astonishing music that has the capacity to shift the face of music culture. The Glitch Mob focus on a futuristic theme over the duration of the album, telling a story of self-discovery which is so brilliantly conveyed through their impeccable productions and mesmerizing visuals. Working alongside Strangeloop Studios, each track on the album is paired with a distinct video in which I was able to experience in a surround sound theatre in an event in collaboration with Dolby Theatres. The six previously unreleased videos that were shown in the theatre can now be streamed via Apple Music and will be available on other channels one-week post-release. The unique combination of breathtaking audio and thought-provoking visuals has created a unique listening experience, one which fans have been eagerly anticipating.
In a Q&A panel with the Glitch mob team and the head of Strangeloop studios, the trio stresses that this tour will include the best display yet of their live tour set up the ‘Blade’. The group stressed that this stage setup is unlike anything fans have ever seen before in the past, definitely an experience that we’re all eager see for ourselves. Be sure to catch them on tour in a city near you to experience this magical journey in person!
