Just three short months after releasing their debut full-length Just Married on Kind of Like Records, GLOCCA MORRA have returned with a brand new six-song EP titled An Obscure Moon Lighting An Obscure World, due out October 16, 2012 on Kind of Like Records. Showcasing a matured version of the band, An Obscure Moon builds on their signature joyfully poppy indie garage sound. The barely-restrained anger that was such a critical part of Just Married is still evident but in smaller doses, peaking out around the angular, poppy guitar riffs and huge, sing-along choruses that critics hailed on their last release.
“It’s angry without directly proving it. It will take a few minutes to realize how sad or livid each song is because it isn’t being yelled at you (for the most part),” explains singer/guitarist Zack Schwartz of the new EP. “The songs sound different because we have a new member [Nate Dionne of Snowing]. The writing is smoother and more enjoyable, there’s less apparent noodling. We hope people are disappointed,” he deadpans acerbically. But fans of Glocca Morra have nothing to worry about – lyrics like “the next time you break my cigarette, with breakneck speed I’ll fucking break your neck” prove the band is still just as potty-mouthed and caustic ever – though their sound has matured, it remains something of a relief to say Glocca Morra hasn’t really grown up at all.
The band, who will appear at Fest 11, has also announced a run of late fall tour dates (all dates below). The first song from the new EP “See Through Person” can now be heard via SoundCloud at http://soundcloud.com/kindoflikerecords/glocca-morra-see-through. “It’s about not truly knowing anything about anyone, and desperately needing people who don’t desperately need you,” explains Zack cryptically. But for as bizarre and mysterious as Glocca Morra can be, An Obscure Moon is anything but. Effervescent, overwhelming and hopelessly addictive, it’s the perfect soundtrack for shorter days and fall drives with all the windows down.
