“Dark Moto” by Gloin

Gloin is a four-piece noise rock group from Toronto, Ontario. The band just released their full-length We Found This, which is now available via via Mothland. Along with the album’s arrival, Gloin have shared a music video for “Dark Moto.” Formed in 2018 by John Watson (Guitar, Vocals), Vic Byers (Bass, Vocals), Simon Kou (Drums) and Richard Garnham (Synthesizers). The band will be hitting the road behind the album, with stops in Chicago, Seattle, and Toronto and more.

Band member Sara May on the video for “Dark Moto:”

My vision for how to shoot and edit this video was inspired by the unique character of Gloin’s music. A seemingly straightforward concept that slowly reveals deep complexities and sinister undertones. Always drawing you in and leaving you wanting more. The band seems to create and perform music in an unseen dystopia and I tried to capture a small part of that in the “Dark Moto” video.

Gloin elected to print their waves at Soleil Sound and Palace Recording, working alongside up-and-coming studio wizard Dylan Frankland of Tallies, later turning to Canadian music visionary Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck, METZ, Alvvays, etc.) for the mix. Mastering duties were the affair of Gavin Gardiner at All Day Coconut.
