We’ve been on the gloryBots journey right from the start, and we’re happy to continue with their new single, ‘Hot Panic’. Taken from their upcoming album, ‘Radiation Skies’, the upbeat track has a retro vibe with modern production values.
The side project of Seattle-based artist Jalal Andre, he’s now been joined by multi-instrumentalist Ilya Krisa, and Don Gunn, who was originally brought in to mix the recordings, but stayed on when gloryBots needed a new man on the drums.
Opening with simple guitar chords, ‘Hot Panic’ is quickly joined by both the drums and vocals, and you get the feeling that this is what gloryBots is all about – a team who work well together and who don’t want anyone to get more “glory” – as it were – than anyone else.
You can certainly hear Gunn’s work in ‘Hot Panic’ – but that’s not to lessen the contributions of Andre and Krisa. Clearly if it wasn’t for their vocals and instrumentation it would be very bare indeed. But I guess what I’m trying to say is that all parts of the track play their role and none is given more importance than the rest – they all work together to make ‘Hot Panic’ a song that you will want to replay straight away…and do it over and over again.
