The track offers jangly guitar melodies reminiscent of Real Estate, juxtaposing dreamy, ethereal vocals in the vein of Slowdive.
“Glue” is a no-frills song in the best possible way. There’s no excessive studio trickery or artifice: it’s just the sound of musicians playing together and achieving organic vibes. The charming retro aesthetics of the mix are a nod to bands like The Smiths, but GLASWEN’s personality comes through with every note. “Glue” maintains a cloudy, airy texture throughout the arrangement. There is room for more intense moments, such as the overdriven guitars chasing a busier drum fill in the excellent outro segment.
