Glasvegas- Later...When The Tv Turns To Static: Album Review

Glasvegas is a successful UK band all the way from Glasgow and they have just released their new album, Later…When The TV Turns To Static, their third studio album. Glasvegas is formed of James Allan on vocals and guitar, Rab Allan also on guitar, Paul Donoghue on Bass and Jonna Loffgren on the drums. The album is self-produced by the talented James Allan and includes 10 stunning tracks, a whole 45 minutes of hope and emotion ranging from themes of nostalgia to heartbreak.

The album was produced using a vintage sound desk, adding more of a sentimental sound and it is actually the desk used to record Pavarotti’s classic, Nessun Dorma. Opening the album is “If”, a humble, poetic and incredibly romantic tale of life. When asked about the song, James Allan stated, “My idea for the song came during a phone call…with my good friend Alan McGee. He was talking to me about something quite difficult… and I said to him, ‘Alan, if we didn’t go through the bad stuff, we wouldn’t recognise the good stuff; it would be invisible to you.”

Overall, the latest album by Glasvegas is heartfelt, poignant and relatable. Essential tracks to listen to are definitely the title track, “If” and “Choices” It’s a perfect autumn album to get you through the end of the summer blues.

Rating 6/10
