Ahead of their new album release 'Kings' on June 1st — Australia’s The Glorious announce the release of the first single from it.
They return exploring first love, farewells and lost innocence on the lush and melancholic "Last Game of the Season.” The single was co-produced by founder Dave Mather and long-time collaborator Julian Mendelsohn (Paul McCartney, Kate Bush). The current lineup consists of founders Mather (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Dan Gard’ner (drums, vocals, percussion) and Joel Loukes (bass). According to lead singer Dave Mather, "Last Game of the Season” is partly inspired by the high school drama Friday Night Lights, where the concerns that dominate teenagers' lives are very real and deeply experienced:
“The final game of any sports season is symbolic of the seismic changes we experience at a young age. The song is about letting go of one chapter of your life and moving on to the next, and the mixed emotions that come with this. There is excitement and anticipation, but also a certain sadness and loss of innocence. There is a knowledge that this phase is coming to a close, and that something new is around the corner.”
"The vocals are exquisite, the melodies are marvelous...and it sounds sensational". - Jeff Jenkins, 'Howzat!' (The Music)
