Don’t mistake Ganglians for another stateside ensemble playing hollow tunes that come sepia-toned, rippling with sonic nostalgia for a period its makers never lived through. We'll leave those lo-fi slacker-rock and chilled-out buzz-band comparisons to those other blogs you might read. Unlike many a would-be peer group riding the hype wave before washing up on a forgotten shore, Ganglians’ ambition comes through every bit as clearly as their affection for a sweet melody and wistful lyrical turn.
Still Living is cool without trying, not conforming to on-trend tropes yet resonating with the kind of timeless charm and compositional purity that will immediately set it atop many a so-called scenester’s personal playlist. But dorks and dweebs are cool, too, and Ganglians embrace all-comers to their party.
Download "Drop the Act" below, and pick up the entire album here when it drops on August 29th.
