The Glorious release outstanding new album "Falcon" produced by Julian Mendelsohn

Three piece Melbourne folk/pop/rock outfit The Glorious have just released their second album, "Falcon". Produced by Julian Mendelsohn (Kate Bush, Paul McCartney), this album has leanings towards the sublime sounds of  artists like The Jayhawks and Real Estate with a nod towards the psychedelic sounds of 60's artists like The Byrds and Crosby, Stills and Nash. 

Marty's review: Combining jangling guitars and sweet harmonies with peddle steel, piano and strings, this smooth and tightly produced effort is an album that improves with each listen. It comes at you in a "full sound" which in some ways reminds one of the Phil Spector productions. With an overall feel that's not quite laid back but not overblown either, this collection of heartfelt and emotional tunes leaves you almost gasping after each track. Songwriter and guitarist Dave Mather has opened up some personal musings in his writing and these come across in a way that demands attention. Standout tracks for me are St Clare, Wheel of Confusion, The Wave and I Wake Up. Each track on the album does stand out on its own without being long winded and in some cases almost understated. 

Neil Rogers of The Australian Mood, notably said The Glorious create a “captivating sound with great songs, soaring harmonies, and heartfelt playing.”
