Doomwave is not a genre in our wheelhouse, but that doesn’t prevent appreciation of songs that deserve attention. The song “Hagalaz” by Glaare is deserving. The guitar has a driving relentlessness, until releasing listeners in the final seconds. Unlike typical mixing, the instruments are not subordinate to the vocals. Instead, the female vocalization is a peer to the instrumentation. That coequal relationship is often reserved for bands that are vocally challenged. Glaare is NOT vocally challenged.
Glaare is based in Los Angeles. The members are Rachael (vocals), Brandon (guitar), Cameron (bass) and Jason (synth).
