Milan’s The Gluts recently shared ‘Mashilla’, the second track to be lifted from their forthcoming Ungrateful Heart LP that’s due out 8 October via Fuzz Club Records.
Whilst their previous releases traded in explosive psychedelic noise, Ungrateful Heart sees the Italian four-piece honme in on a sound rooted more in classic 70s punk and 80s hardcore. New single and album-opener ‘Mashilla’ – a barbed noise-rock onslaught that journeys from ferocious to hypnotic and back again – proves that the core of the band’s sound still remains.
In support of Ungrateful Heart, the band will be touring Europe this October. Having picked up a notorious reputation for their powerful, tinnitus-inducing live shows in the years since their 2013 formation, The Gluts have previously toured around the UK, Europe and South Africa and performed at a number of international festivals, including Eurosonic (NL), Fuzz Club Eindhoven (NL), Label Mates (UK), MiAMI Festival (IT) and Endless Daze (ZA). ‘Ungrateful Heart’ arrives following their 2019 LP ‘Dengue Fever Hypnotic Trip’.
‘Mashilla’ starts with an intense dose of noisy chaos, including uncompromising vocal screams and relentless drums and a booming bassline. It transcends however into a much softer, melody driven entity that has you questioning whether you are listening to the same track. Its got The Gluts stamped all over it, and it stomps right in your face.
