Luxury Death – Glue


Infectious and uplifting yet conversely vaguely unsettling, yup, Manchester girlfriend/boyfriend duo Luxury Death are back with their new single “Glue”. It’s melodic DIY pop with a dark twist, and neatly sidesteps the fey C86 trap of jangly cutesy boy-girl harmonies with a backdrop of  wonky off-kilter keyboards, driving guitars and the equivocal refrain you do it cos it hurts’

 The duo consisting of Ben Thompson & Meg Williams describe the song as “a conversation between two lovers at different stages in their lives. They are chained together; simultaneously holding each other close & pulling each other apart. Glue is an expression of that tight, unbalanced unity”. (Not unlike John McDonnell and Jeremy Corbyn then?)

Glue is from their debut EP if the same name and released by the marvellous PNKSLM Recordings on February 24th
