The Glitch Mob go beyond their rock-electronic exploration with ‘Piece of the Indestructible EP’ [EP Review]
Los Angeles threesome, The Glitch Mob, undeniably reinstated their position amongst the bass music community after their grandiose comeback with their second artist album, Love Death Immortality. Since then, the trio have been rigorously touring with their cutting-edge stage rig, ‘The Blade’ — not to mention crafting the official X Games anthem with a daring remix of Metallica.
Now releasing their first full body of work since Love Death Immortality, The Glitch Mob bring forth their long-awaited three-track EP, Piece of the Indestructible.
Having already given out “Better Hide, Better Run” for those that pre-ordered the EP, the single represents their revered mixture of bass music and rock. “Head Full of Shadows,” however, treads in harder waters than “Better Hide, Better Run,” presenting a snarling electro demeanor that vigorously charges forward with thunderous drums and piercing synth melodies. “The Clouds Breathe For You” is the outcast of the EP, designated to show the softer side to their musical capacities. In many ways, it mirrors the same mood of “Beauty of the Unhidden Heart” from the trio’s last album.
The Glitch Mob may be a leading force in rock-electronic crossover culture, but releases like Piece of the Indestructible demonstrate the breadth of their talents beyond the bass-loving world.
