The Glitch Mob released their first solo EP since Piece of the Indestructible 2015 on Friday, March 20th. After postponing their Drink the Sea tour celebrating the decade anniversary of their debut album following coronavirus concerns, we were excited for the surprise release. After we enjoyed three unexpected collaborations with 1788-L, Zeke Beats, and Lick, The Glitch Mob proved to be just as impressive with their newest solo tracks. Chemical clocks in at just shy of ten minutes over three songs and features music videos for each. Check out the new EP and read our review below for this northwest favorite.

Chemicals opens project with melodic vocals

Chemicals marks the first track of three on the same-titled EP. Throughout the song, you can hear The Glitch Mob’s characteristic synth strings paired with melodic vocals from Valerie Broussard. This is one of their most pop-sounding songs to date, in a great introduction to the project.

Take Control bridges lighter pop sound to grittier bass

If there was ever a way to describe The Glitch Mob in one track, it would be Take Control. The synth layers that form the melody against a steady bass line creates a behemoth of track that sounds uniquely theirs. Of the three songs on Chemicals, this one stands out as a conduit between the melodic and glitchier sounds that The Glitch Mob brand is fashioned around.

The Stance closes out project with weight


Finally, The Stance closes out the EP in an epic way. Using vocals reminiscent of Chemicals, and leaning heavily on percussive instruments, the project ends with a slow intensity after some heavy drops. As a result, The Glitch Mob invites us to celebrate their 10-year debut anniversary in a culminating way. While their now-postponed Drink the Sea tour promised a proper tribute to an influential album, this EP feels like the next best thing.
