“Chewing On A Wire” By Glove

Glove releases their first single of 2023, “Chewing on a Wire” alongside a self-directed video. The band Fuse elements of post punk and new wave. In the self-directed arthouse official video, viewers are invited into a harmonious dance of flesh and wire, further tangling them into the unending fractals of nature and those that are manmade.

Next month, Glove will set out on a headline run of US and UK tour dates. After gigging their way up the East Coast, they will make a detour to the UK for more headline shows and a few dates supporting Nation of Language.

The band on “Chewing on a Wire:”

“”Chewing on a Wire” is the yearning for the natural and digital world to be able to coexist together,” explains the band. “To believe in the advancement of technology without leaving the natural world behind. Fighting for balance and the battlefield is on the dance floor.

This song was written on the day we got turned down by a record label. It wasn’t significant at the time, but looking back now, it’s funny timing. The song was a completely different version then. The lyrics and notes have stayed the same, but the instruments, BPM and overall feeling have taken new shape. We wrote and recorded this song at home. Actually, the chorus wasn’t fully written till right before we were about to send the song to get mixed and it became our favorite part of the song.”
