It’s safe to say I had no idea what to expect when I hit play on Major Glen’s latest single Sign from Heaven. I winced in anticipation of an overly pious offering of religious devotion. Instead, I was treated to one of the most experimentally playful Rock anthems I’ve had the pleasure of checking out this year. Major Glen isn’t isn’t a band that aims to assimilate every single predecessor who has received notoriety for their sound. That being said, there was a fair amount of reminiscence to his style to bands such as Fidlar and Wavves with their Lo-Fi approach to production. Anyone who slips ‘Sunday Funday’ into their lyrics and has the ability to pull it off and still remain on the right side of cool will always get a thumbs up from me. The Denver Colorado based band take their inspiration from iconic acts from the 60’s, 70’s and 90’s to create their pioneeringly prodigal high-energy sound.
