My first thought when I listened to Gloson‘s first full-length album Grimen was…

“Oh shit, I found a band similar to Cult of Luna. YAS!”

And you’ll completely understand me if you are a CoL fan and have listened to this epic debut album. There are a lot of similarities here.

  1. Cult of Luna are both from Sweden.
  2. The kinds of synths and effects anchored by both bands are incredibly similar sounding.
  3. And the extended and elegant song structures align closely.

Now, that’s not to say that Gloson does not stand out. There are definitely aspects of their sound that are less clean and more organic that Cult of Luna. The Song of the Week this time around is ‘Cringe’ because it’s the first track that stood out among the other upon first listen. Check it out below.
