In tandem with the release of their sophomore EP, Immaterial, LA psych-gazers Supergloom have shared a hand-crafted lyric video of the project’s belligerently psychedelic focus track, “Glass Ajar.”
Immaterial showcases the band with a more refined collection of songs, evident that the band’s chemistry continues to grow with each subsequent release. The songs are inspired by existentialism and philosophy. Trying to find one’s place within the confines of society with much self-reflection leads to a sequence of epiphanies with the realization that nothing is real other than the collective consciousness that binds us all together. The focus track “Glass Ajar” and prior single “Cycles” comment on the light and dark sides of codependence.
Each song on the EP was demoed with parts being passed back and forth and then brought into the rehearsal room to flesh out. MBV, Queens of the Stone Age, Smashing Pumpkins, and Nine Inch Nails were a few bands that inspired the songwriting of the EP. The songs were then tracked live, focusing on the drums and bass and then overdubbing guitars, keys, and vocals. The EP was produced by Smashing Pumpkins’ Jeff Schroeder and Jules de Gasperis, engineered & mixed by Jules de Gasperis, and mastered by Will Borza and Joe Lambert.
