I can’t quite figure out what it is about Gauntlet Hair, but I can’t get enough of their recently released self-titled debut album.
Each track from these Denver Indie rockers is a kaleidoscopic swirl of influences pulling in elements of dream rock, dance floor bangers, meandering shoe-gaze, and the larger than life guitar lines of Durutti Column, which Andy, Gauntlet Hair’s guitarist, lists as a major influence.
The juxtaposition of massive bass-laden beats and cavernous reverb-laden guitars is unsettling, in that you don't know whether to dance or to sequester yourself in a room doing massive amounts of mind altering drugs.
Check out “Top Bunk” and the far more danceable “Keep Time” below. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
