New Video: New JOVM Mainstay My Cruel Goro Returns with a Swinging and Anthemic, 90s Alt Rock-Leaning Song and Visuals



Over the course of this year, My Cruel Goro, an alt-rock/shoegaze trio, comprised of Andrea Marashi (vocals, guitar and programming), Andrea Marcellini (bass) and Tommaso Adanti (drums) have quickly become JOVM mainstay artists for a sound that possesses elements of 70s Brit rock, punk, shoegaze, 90s alt rock and Brit pop — it’s a warmly familiar and radio-friendly sound that pairs huge, power chord guitar chords played through distortion and other effects pedals with anthemic hooks, thundering drumming and shouted lyrics. The trio which splits time between their native Italy and Reykjavik, Iceland recently released their Stuff EP and the EP’s latest single “Glue Buzz” is a swaggering, strutting and swinging single consisting of their penchant for pairing anthem hook with blazing guitar pyrotechnics, propulsive and thundering drumming and shouted lyrics. Interestingly, this particular sing manages to reveal a subtle expansion of their sound as the song subtly channels The Jesus and Mary Chain, A Place to Bury Strangers and others but with a modern sheen.

The recently released music video will further the band’s reputation for pairing their shoegaze and alt-rock sound with artfully surreal, seemingly handcrafted videos that would have appeared on 120 Minutes-era MTV.
