Glocca Morra - “them”
In terms of the current Kinsella-esque emo revival that’s been happening over the last few years, Glocca Morra is a band that doesn’t come up in conversation nearly as much as they should. Their first release was an effort in the vein Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate). It was a solid debut, but then the band decided to play faster and harder and everything changed.
They released a fantastic split 7” with The Greek Favourites and two weeks ago they put out a 6 song cassette entitled “Ghoul Intentions” and it rips. Instead of dwelling on the whole “twinkly” (forgive me for the term) trip, the band plays a combination of noisey garage punk with a nice touch of emo. The lyrics are bitter, confrontational, and self-deprecating, but not in an indulgent manner. I think (hope) that they’ll be referenced as an influence when a new wave of emo emerges years from now. Until then, they are hopefully putting out a new LP soon, so keep an eye out for that!
