Boston band Gladiola is an easy like. The group has a classic indie college vibe that possesses the blended sound of Mac McCaughan (Superchunk), Walt Mink, and The Waterboys. It is the type of jangle that is fun to root for and our premiere track today, “Greatest Hits,” should get you onboard..
The laid back approach of Gladiola is a plus and if you have been around the music scene for any period of time you will appreciate many of their lyrics. “Greatest Hits” features one of the best lines when Bill Madden-Fuoco sings: “I’m blasting through my greatest hits; It’s a list of things I didn’t do.” The band captures the mentality of how life moves on and it is what you make of it – in just a couple lines. I think we can all agree.
The band is self releasing their new album, This Year’s Storm, on February 12th. If you like what you hear make sure you support Gladiola and pick up a copy next month!
