Listen: Phoenix’s Glixen Share New Single ‘lust’

Marking the second single since last year’s debut EP ‘She Only Said’, Glixen’s ‘lust’ is out now.

Formed in Phoenix, Arizona, Glixen were founded out of the local scene of emerging DIY artists, they have since played across the U.S. and released their debut EP ‘She Only Said’ last year via tastemaking Philadelphia-based label Julia’s War (MJ Lenderman & Wednesday, feeble little horse). Now well and truly introduced, Glixen are lined up to tour with Interpol, DIIV, and SASAMI all the way up to early Summer as they approach their sophomore EP.

With ‘lust’, the quartet tease what can be expected from their Sonny DiPerri (my bloody valentine, DIIV) produced second EP due for release later this year, aligning them with some of shoegaze’s most notable heavyweights. Atop the resonance of nu-metal guitar and grungy textures, Aislinn Ritchie’s vocals carve delicate melodies, contradicting yet complimenting the instrumentation so thoroughly whilst developing their signature style.

On the track, Ritchie shared, “‘lust’ is about the yearning and wanting of somebody and the rush that that person makes you feel. It is a feeling that is shallow, yet it feels intense and passionate but only for a moment. We wanted to take the direction of our sound to a heavier place, I wanted the weight of the sound to crush me.”
