The Glammers formed their band in Edinburgh, England around 2006. They are an alternative rock band that got their start in the European indie scene thanks to Myspace. Their self titled album is their first full length studio release. Their musical influences include Led Zepplin, The White Stripes, and Depeche Mode.
Most of their songs were very catchy and had an indie and nostalgic feel to it. The Glammers have a really great sound and their instrumentals were very memorable and impressive. Coupled with the deep lyrics, their songs had a good mix of classic and modern rock. My favorite song on the whole album was “Double Life” because it was versatile and told an interesting story about a special agent. Whether it is storytelling or rocking out, the Glammers know what they are doing.
My only gripes were the song “Baby” and their thick accents. “Baby” just did not feel like it fit in with the rest of the album and could have been left out. Also, I liked their singing, but there were instances where their thick accent got in the way of the songs making it difficult to understand. On the other hand, their accents do set them apart from other bands and can be overlooked or forgiven most of the time. Other than those two issues, this was a solid album. If you like classic, modern, or alternative rock, this is the album for you. For those reasons, I am giving this album a “B.”
