Glades: To Love You

Words by Gloria Brancatisano

One for your summer playlist.

We might have had to wait, but finally Sydney electronic pop trio Glades has dropped its debut album To Love You. And it was well worth it.

Exploring love in all forms – from loving others to loving yourself – this is a debut record that doesn’t disappoint. At its core, To Love You is unapologetic electro-pop. Upbeat, danceable production carries huge pop sounds from start to finish. Tracks like ‘Nervous Energy’, ‘Not About You’ and ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ capture that perfectly.

But it’s tracks like personal album highlight ‘Sweetheart’, vulnerable slow-burner ‘Better Love’ or ‘80 Miles’ – with its electric guitar feel – that showcase Glades’ versatility. At the core of the sound sits Karina Wykes’ brilliant vocals and no matter the style, she holds the record together.

To Love You is an absolute joy to listen to, and is sure to find its home in your summer playlists.
