Australia's The Glorious Give a Taste of Forthcoming Album with Premiere of "Toward Neptune"

The Glorious are ready for American success with their forthcoming album “Falcon” due out January 8th. Compared to sweetly sublime stylings of The Jayhawks and Real Estate, the Aussie band has teamed up with producer Julian Mendelsohn (Paul McCartney, Belle & Sebastian) on this upcoming album.

Listen to the premiere of “Toward Neptune” here.

(Los Angeles, CA) November 30, 2015 - The Musebox today announced the premiere of “Toward Neptune”— the finely crafted pop single from Australia’s The Glorious. “Toward Neptune” is the second release from Falcon, the Melbourne band’s forthcoming full-length album co-produced by Julian Mendelsohn (Paul McCartney). Neil Rogers of The Australian Mood, notably said The Glorious create a “captivating sound with great songs, soaring harmonies, and heartfelt playing.”

“Toward Neptune” is a chronicle of a journey into deep space. Inspired in equal measure by George Harrison's 'Beware of Darkness' and the Ridley Scott film 'Prometheus', It is a literal exploration of an imaginary mission to our farthest planet. Produced by singer-songwriter Dave Mather and Julian Mendelsohn (Kate Bush, Paul McCartney), the song bristles with metallic guitars, spacey keyboards and a dead-eye unison vocal by Mather and drummer Dan Gard'ner. The clenched-fist rhythm section nails the track down while the melody floats in dreamy echo, evoking a mixture of bliss and dread as the song moves toward the outer reaches of the universe.

Founded in Melbourne in 2004 by Mather and longtime friend and collaborator Dan Gard'ner, The Glorious began as a vehicle for Mather's songwriting before evolving into a full band. The band's lineup solidified with the addition of Joel Loukes (bass) and Danny Stain (guitar).
