Description

For their remarkable third record Off You Go, Boston indie favorites Gladiola turned the focus insular, writing catchy, power pop anthems about, simply, what they know. Lead singer and English teacher Bill Madden-Fuoco took the advice he doles out to his students, “Write what you know” to heart, crafting tunes from classroom experiences and observations of his Boston Public high school students. “Most of the songs are about teenagers, and a lot of the ideas came right from the classroom,” he explains. Evoking the rebellious teenage spirit captured by The Hold Steady, Madden-Fuoco and Co. document these experiences with an electric garage spirit, matching the protagonists and their journeys.

Political themes are peppered throughout Off You Go, including "My Biography," which sprung to life from an epiphany hatched from a class reading of The Autobiography of Malcolm X. Similarly, “No Flag” tells the story of a group of friends graduating high school, their shared path about to diverge into different destinations. For one character, an undocumented immigrant, the path seems to disappear altogether. “I didn’t set out to write a song about immigration issues,” says Madden-Fuoco, “but this is the story of many students I know, and it’s not a story that you can just file away. For me, songs are often formed from the thoughts that are stuck in heavy rotation.”

 The new video for "Little Mystic" by power pop enthusiasts Gladiola,off their third record Off You Go. The video is an extension of their teen-like perspective of the world. It takes you on a quick journey through the scenic streets of Boston accompanied by their high-energy pop rock tune.
