Gloria Cycles are performing an exclusive in store at Resident Records this week to celebrate the release of LP Campsite Discotheque.
Gloria Cycles are a Brighton band swimming in rock ‘n’ roll, drenched in guitar riffs with the howls of Orlando Weeks, ringing out teddy boy music for the masses. Their new album Campsite Discotheque (released April 5) moves along swiftly, calling out. It cries about the normal, demographically appealing to the people. As the album moves, it hits gold. The song ‘Bag’ lifts Gloria Cycles out of the mundane trickle of bands clearly influenced by The Strokes and Artic Monkeys. It remains hazy like a grey Sunday, then the violins lift the song up and leave it romantically in the sun. With the delicate vocals of Jen Dalby, it echoes the vogue music of Laura Marling and Florence And The Machine. The song ‘Chewed Up’ is where the album picks itself up. A disco beat rhythm dances along side an Artic Monkey like riff. The bands overall feel is something like The Virgins.
