Rising alt-Rock band Pirates of Radio (Hope Punk Records) have a new video for their latest single “Glow” out today, and Ghost Cult is psyched to bring it to ya! Since the band is a multinational troupe, the guys have never been in a room together during the writing and recording processes, collaborating via WhatsApp and the cloud. Still, they sound like a well-tuned machine, crafting memorable, anthemic tracks, and infectious melodies, while maintaining their style. “Glow” has a droning guitar, ear-catching melody, and great flow. The video was shot and edited collaboratively by the band and creative friends between Dubai and Germany. The eye-catching video for “Glow” perfectly matched the stirring message of being your own life preserver and the meaning of support behind the track. Check out the clip and find “the glow….”
“GLOW is a song about being stuck in bad situations and not being able/not being offered the opportunity to get out. What started out as a beat and a melody and words about poverty, morphed into a rock anthem about just that; be it not being able to see your kids for months due to COVID-19, walking miles (and losing loved ones on the way) to get home because you’ve been retrenched from some shitty factory, being stuck in shitty job, losing your shitty job, loneliness, depression, being an addict…” comments lyricist Ramon Rabie.
GLOW is available now on all digital platforms via HopePunk Records https://songwhip.com/pirates-of-radio/glow
