The So So Glos are ascendant, and their new LP Kamikaze jumped 18 spots to reach a new peak at #44 on last week’s CMJ Radio 200. Help it reach an even higher chart number this week, by getting its addictive, fist-pumping songs into your rotation!
One song that keeps popping on the playlist of CMJ stations is album opener “Dancing Industry,” and the Glos just premiered the exuberant video for it last week on Clash Music. Helmed by Charlie Ahearn, director of 80’s cult classic Wild Style, the guerrilla-shot video showcases a group of street performers doing an impromptu dance routine in a subway to a car filled with apathetic passengers. The video is as fun, chaotic, communal, and disruptive as the music of The So So Glos – watch it here or below.
The band was recently featured in Folio Magazine, in an article that lovingly delves into the history of a band that technically got its start when its members were aged four, five, and six and began writing silly songs about their hometown of New York. A couple of decades later, the Glos have matured into the incisive, powerful band we know today, and the magazine describes Kamikaze as “a brooding, weighty, yet life-affirming sonic blast that takes the human race to task for its inexhaustible ability to destroy the planet.” Read the feature, which includes thoughtful and sincere quotes from bandleader Alex Levine, right here.
