On February 18th, Lyon based indie-rock collective Glossy Clouds, share ‘Bargain Hunter’ produced by Liam Watson (White Stripes), at his all-analogue Toe Rag Studios, London.  The new single arrives with an accompanying, self-directed music video, released the same day via UK independent label, KWS Blank Canvas Music. ‘Bargain Hunter’ follows ‘Nobody In The Dust’ and is the second single to be released from the band’s debut album set for release in June 2022. Glossy Clouds released their self-titled debut EP in July 2021.

Bargain hunter is a simple, raw, unifying rock track that chants, like a rock rebellion. Clean verses and hook-laden guitar riffs contrast with an explosive chorus, as Glossy Clouds lyrically celebrate the antithesis of everything that is shiny and new. 

The band said “This song is about our love for timeworn things that have a history and can flourish in their second life. It talks about the quest to find what is really useful no matter what the age, and at the same time champions avoiding waste and excessive consumption.

They continued to talk about the accompanying music video “We wanted to continue the humorous context of our previous videos, but at the same time radically shakes up our visuals. We swapped our usual warm sunny Californian colours for a gloomy climate and a contrasting black and white setting. We scripted a random duo performing on stage in the middle of nowhere, dressed all in white, desperately trying to win over their audience of three girls. The atmosphere intensifies causing a riotous revolt. 

Glossy Clouds are Jérôme Bralet (vocals and Guitar), Hugo Merle (Drums) and their three female choristers. The duo were introduced by their respective girlfriends and immediately hit it off, a shared outlook and energy for music, art, photography and life were channelled into their songwriting and performances to create the unique collective ‘Glossy Clouds’. The result is not just a band, but a creative universe where the gentle humour and anything-goes lawlessness is utterly riveting. The inseparable songwriting duo are outsiders looking in, effectively rock kids in a dance town. It’s this that binds them.

 ‘Glossy Clouds’ have been supported online by the likes of Wonderland, Clash and The Most Radicalist to name but a few. A live showcase of all releases was performed at 229 London on Tuesday 14th September.  The live show aligned the band’s unique songwriting and visuals to craft a complete artistic statement and an electric, sexy glam atmosphere. Audiences were treated to matching custom-made costumes, wild stage moves and unlimited supplies of energy.

With music that captivates the listener from the outset, alongside a compelling glorious, unadorned, unpretentious thirst for self-expression, the future looks very bright for Glossy Clouds.
