Gloo take on the A-Z challenge!

Gloo take on the A-Z challenge!

October 11, 2017 |



Littlehampton trio Gloom have recently streamed their new single Force You. We wanted to know more about the band so asked them to take us deeper into their world through our A-Z challenge!

A song that made you want to make music?

Biffy Clyro – ‘57’. In fact, that whole album was just the most refreshing change from hearing ‘Rock DJ’ on repeat.

Best rider you've had?

These are quite the rarity for us, so some tap water and beer tokens is great! Parking would be a godsend also.

Craziest moment you've experienced in the band?

Flying to Northern Ireland to record our album was kinda crazy. Like a real budget holiday but you’re carrying your cymbals round all the time.

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

Force You’s chorus “agh agh agh agh agh”. Sung with our passion its super deep...trust us.

Easiest song you wrote?

Pig’ was almost written in the time it took to jam through so takes the top spot.

Favourite song in your set?

Let Me Have Some’ for sure. Feels like a proper pinnacle of the set both mentally and 100% physically! This song takes it out of ya .... in a good way.

Guest you'd most like to feature on your record?

Our musical tastes are so far apart that this would never be agreed on haha - probably for Tom and Simon’s sake a Beatles member, preferably one that’s still living.

Hardest thing about being in a band?

Being promised tons of cool shit that in reality will not happen. You learn kinda quick how to sort the shady ones out though.

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Tom’s got no left big toe nail.

Jokes you have in the band?

Tom being pinned as the time lord. Able to steal your time from you without you noticing and hide it in his bag.

Key to writing a song?

The key to any good track is having a good chorus, but who are we to give tips on songwriting....yet!

Longest distance you've traveled to play a show?

Bristol. Any city that has a ping pong cafe is worth the journey.
