about

GLIMMERMEN return with a new record called Here I Stand, 11 songs delivered in their own inimitable style. Themes of love and loss interweave with wide-eyed melodies, creating an album all at once aghast at and in love with the world.

As alluded to in the cover art, the stand taken is not necessarily on solid ground, as many things are at play and in flux, and themes draw parallels with life's many dysfunctional communication platforms and the struggle to makes sense of things within and without.

However, a fine balance is achieved by the musical scaffolding of guitar, bass, drums and brass, delivering an elevational, upbeat bunch of singable songs. The album was recorded in the Meadow in Co Wicklow early this year and expands further the musical landscape created in 2016's Breakin' Out.

From the hopeful title track to the playful It's Nice, to the party-at-the-end-of-the-world vibes of Sleep Walkin, this is a record that will keep you on your toes and keep them tapping.

Here I Stand is out on Saturday, November 9. It will only be available on vinyl record with an individual digital download code inside.

about

glimmermen Dublin, Ireland

"Glimmermen are a different sort of band. In a sea of Spector-like indie landfill fodder they wear their honesty & integrity on their black sleeves with a sound that goes straight to the heart. Glimmermen know exactly the sound they want to make & that's something we want to hear". Le Cool Magazine Dublin ... more

Track Name: It's Nice (when people accept you for who you are)
It's Nice when people accept you for who you are
It's Nice when people accept you for who you are
And they're unconcerned about that bridge you burned
Or that cash you earned on the day

It's Nice when people accept you for who you are
It's Nice when people accept you for who you are
And they're unperturbed about your choice of words
No matter how absurd that they seem

(chorus)
It's nice to belong to some body or some one
Like a note in a song hoping the melody up and takes it a long
And that band starts up and the crowd start moving
And the world looks good for a while, and you smile

t's Nice when people accept you for who you are
It's Nice when people accept you for who you are
And they don't talk down when your friend are in town
And they all come around in the end

(chorus)
It's nice to belong to some body or some one
Like a note in a song hoping the melody up and takes it a long
And that band starts up and the crowd start moving
And the world looks good for a while, and you smile
