What’s this? The brand-new single from Swedish collective Stockholm Noir. ‘Glory’.
What’s it like? It’s been a while since we’ve featured Stockholm Noir on here, despite the many songs they’ve released: such is the hit and miss nature of their output, to our taste at least. But ‘Glory’ is most definitely a stonking great hit.
Is it as good as ‘Hopeless Dreams’? That song was both a blessing and a curse, in that it was an exceptional debut single that they have not been able to match with any of its subsequent releases. Until now, that is. ‘Glory’ is right up there with the brilliance of that debut. Atmospheric, pounding, ethereal – all at the same time. And utterly captivating from start to finish.
More from Stockholm Noir? Kindly, they’ve added over a minute to the extended version of this song, which we’re very grateful for.
