Muruch favorite DeLooze just released her new single and video “Moon of Awe” which features some beautiful choreography. The song is lovely, lushly dramatic pop.
DeLooze’s new release Glass Army is one of my favorite albums of the year. You can download a free, legal mp3 of an older track, “Big Love,” below…
DeLooze’s full-length debut, Glass Army, more than lives up to the spectacular promise of its first single, “DeathStar.” The album’s eerie, theatrical rock is exquisitely melodic and amazingly worthy of the Siouxsie & the Banshees comparisons DeLooze has received – though she could just as easily be compared to Hannah Fury, Choirgirl-era Tori Amos and even Florence + the Machine or Muse on certain songs. DeLooze is far too unique to pin down to one comparison.
The stand out tracks on the album are “Nature Boy” and “DeathStar,” but every song on the album is truly magnificent and I love it more with each listen (of which there have been many).
I can’t remember the last time an album excited me as much as DeLooze’s Glass Army. This kind of bold, bewitching rock is a very rare breed these days. It’s sure to be on my best of the year list come December.
After 14 years of sorting through hundreds of music submissions every day, we here at Muruch are fairly immune to all the usual press release tactics. Describing a band as “Siouxsie-like” is one of the few remaining sure fire ways to catch my attention, though it also causes me to listen with a far more critical ear. DeLooze’s eerie new video, “Deathstar,” landed in my inbox with just such a dangerously tantalizing subject line. Fortunately for them (and for us) the song is worthy of such a lofty comparison. The music doesn’t pack the punk punch of The Banshees, but lead singer Stacey DeLooze’s voice definitely inhabits the same unearthly space as the legendary Siouxsie Sioux. DeLooze’s debut album, Glass Army, will be released on April 14th.
