A six-piece band of multi-instrumentalists, Glom is a classic alt-rock inspired act formed in Brooklyn, New York. The group started when childhood friends Sean Dunnevant, Peter Beiser, Sahil Ansari, and Jonathan Harwood got together in high school to play Beatles and Strokes covers. Now also including Jordan Wolff and Jonathan Crandall, Glom is gearing up to release their sophomore record, Merit. What you hear is a completely actualized, expertly produced, and incredibly warm collection of songs.
Glom creates an LCD Soundsystem electronic meets rock vibe on their new single “Fomo” (below) off of Merit. “Fomo” is a song built on hooky and tasteful vocals set atop a warm bed of electric tone. It is here where Brooklyn based Glom rests in a comfortable bath of psychedelic fusion, boasting a sentiment of self-awareness, mental health, and restful growth.
Dunnevant says that “Each song on Merit plays a role in relaying that sentiment of not feeling comfortable where we are; the need to carve out our own lane, our own scene where the thought of ‘other’ doesn’t systemically infiltrate and dictate our roles and behaviors.”
