Nostalgia can be a trap many bands struggle to escape from, but for Living, the Norwegian band premiering their new song "Glory" with The FADER today, it took an unexpected source from the past to provide valuable inspiration. "'Glory' started innocently enough as an attempt to cover “Steal My Sunshine” by 90’s one-hit-wonder Len," the band told me over email. Living classified their single as a "zen-pop" tune about " liberating oneself from fears... or coping with them." Indeed, the track's washed out Madchester vibes —spacey, unfolding synths, angelic vocals, and a groovy amen break — could be a valuable tool the next time you need to transcend.
Listen to "Glory" below. Living will play the by:larm Festival in Oslo on Friday, March 3 at Cafe Mono.
