Daniel Anderson is to Glowbug what Trent Reznor is to Nine Inch Nails, what Justin Vernon is to Bon Iver, the name behind the noise. Born from the ashes of Idiot Pilot in a Bellingham basement, the projects metamorphosis has been an organic one from the start. Emerging from the laptop beat driven, reverb soaked haze of the early days and blossoming into full on pop explorations on last album Suit Of Swords (All available for free download on Bandcamp). Perhaps the growth is reflected by Dan's own shift in listening habbits from the likes of The Blood Brothers and Sunny Day Real Estate to the not-so-guilty pleasures of Huey Lewis, Katy Perry, and Talking Heads, or perhaps this genesis of pop pleasure stemmed from Dan's move south from the rain drenched Northwest to Los Angeles in 2012 where he wrote the entirety of Suit of Swords, a love letter to his new home. The album itself found fans world wide via free release online and despite virtually no promotion, made it's way onto episodes of MTV's Washington Heights + Snooki and Jwoww earlier this year. Daniel also just wrapped scoring on his first film project under the Glowbug moniker, you'll hear his work in the forthcoming Lily & Kat, starring Hannah Murray (Game Of Thrones, Skins UK) later this year.
Let "Go Easy" act as the first page in a new chapter for Glowbug, with an album on the horizon for 2013 and this latest video representing the projects evolved live presentation. Their custom built live light rig pulsates in programmed bursts to the beat, adding another dimension to the neon blur that is the Glowbug experience. The track itself is now available for free download on Glowbug's site (www.glowbugsounds.com) with more surprises to await in the coming months -- CoS
