Italian punks share the piercing second single from forthcoming LP ‘Estasi’, out next week on Fuzz Club Records

In anticipation of their new LP on Fuzz Club Records, Italian punks The Gluts have served up a primitive slab of totally visceral noise-rock on ‘ Colline Bianche ’ – the second single from Estasi, due for release May 5th.

Latest single and album opener ‘ Colline Bianche ’ is utterly ferocious post-punk that throughout its running time, constantly teeters on the brink, ready to self-destruct at any minute – like a cross between the noisiest extremes of Killing Joke and newer post-punk contemporaries such as Protomartyr. Until the swirling hisses of feedback in its finale, the song begins as a slow-burner of brooding basslines, tortured vocals and almost-gothic guitars. It slowly builds into a piercing cacophony of noise before suddenly dying down and starting over – giving the listener whiplash over and over as it throws them between a mix of foreboding psych/post-punk and a blast of sheer noise.

Despite leaning further on the noise-rock/psych side of things, The Gluts have always had a DIY punk ethos at their heart. This is most evident in their primitive energy, both on record and live. Since the release of their debut album ‘Warsaw’ in 2014, the band have been playing shows and building up a strong following across Italy – particularly after a recent run of shows with NY psych legends White Hills.

With the release of LP2 – the first on Fuzz Club – it’s clear The Gluts are undeniable set to blow away noiseniks across the globe with an album this intense and bludgeoning. Already earning a strong reputation across Italy these guys are about to take their angular noise-rock to international waters – with something to love for lovers of punk, psychedelia and noise alike.

“The band’s approach lends a punk edge to their endlessly engrossing psychedelic wanderings. New album ‘Estasi’ is incoming it’s another piece of unrelenting sonic savagery and aural innovation” Clash
