I’m checking out Glasvegas this week, and will have a review to post back soon. Meanwhile, if you know nothing about them, be pleasantly surprised. Listen to their hit “Geraldine” below, and I’ve attached their bio.
Glasvegas’ debut album was released on 8th September to huge critical acclaim seemingly only shortly after initial interest from their MySpace Demos and Alan McGee’s blogs about the band. The self-titled album was co-produced by James Allan & Rich Costey (also worked with Franz Ferdinand, Interpol, Muse) and recorded in New York.
The winners of the 2008 NME ‘Philip Hall Radar Award’ for most promising new band, they’ve released two hit singles from the album in Geraldine and Daddy’s Gone and were a must-see band at this year’s Glastonbury, T In The Park, Latitude, Underage and Reading/Leeds.
