Fort Collins, Colorado's Gleemer have returned today to announce their new album, Down Through, due out May 8, 2020 via Other People Records. The band teamed with acclaimed producer/engineer Will Yip (Turnover, Code Orange, Turnstile) to record Down Through, expanding on their vibrant sound and creating their most accomplished work to date. To mark the announcement Gleemer have shared the album's first single "TTX" an impressive cut of shimmering guitars and warm vocals that builds from gentle fingerpicking to a sprawling conclusion.
Down Through finds Gleemer reaching for new dynamic heights with their shoegaze-influenced sound. Vocalist/guitarist Corey Coffman, a successful producer/engineer in his own right, collaborated with Yip to hone the delicate balance between fuzz-drenched catharsis and somber atmospherics that defines Gleemer's music, bringing Coffman's melodies to the forefront along with Yip's signature powerhouse drums. The result is an album that dials up the weight of Gleemer's sound without sacrificing its essential dream-like qualities.
Coffman discussed the band's approach to making Down Through, saying:
"Gleemer has been a journey over the past few years where we’ve been maneuvering through our lives, tapping into our creativity, and finding inspiration in so much around us. Our lives brought us to Down Through. When you start creating music, you hope to one day reach that point in your career where you make THAT record, and Down Through might be that record. 'TTX' is the first of many showings of this journey, and we’re excited to finally share this music with our people."
