You'll take to Racing Glacier's new track like "Moths" to a flame [Premiere]

We wrote about UK indie pop outfit Racing Glaciers & their breakout track “New Country” last month, and now we’re privileged to premiere their newest song, “Moths” – a dreamy and dramatic offering that takes listeners on an ebbing, flowing musical jaunt.

Unlike their last track, “Moths” starts out modestly with a lolling vocal entering at the :38 mark. Half a minute later the vox gets stripped and truly shines as the instrumental drops out (with the exception of a snare and a few accompanying notes that act as a matter of melodic requisite). And we're finding that the "less is more" mentality has an undeniably impressive grounding of truth. It’s easy to rock out and scream it loud. But to pull back to the point of inwardly invoking emotion? That takes skill. 

When we least expect it, the tempo takes flight, creating a push/pull tug-of-war between verse/chorus – and like moths to a flame we’re helplessly drawn in. At 3:20, the swarming cloud of electric guitar is flying fast, ending the song on a high note and sound equivalent of a bright light. 

Enjoy “Moths” here and then get social with these five gents at the links below.
