MAGNET Exclusive: Premiere Of Glorybots’ “Radiate”

On July 31, Glorybots returns with the self-released Invisible. The project is the brainchild of Seattle-based Jalal Andre (Echo Texture) and debuted two years ago with Dark Alien Pop. The title of that LP will give you a good indication of the type of music Andre likes to create. Glorybots pushes things further out of the rock realm than Echo Texture, and while there are lots of twists and turns, Andre keeps his feet on the ground while reaching for the stars. There’s an earthy method to his extraterrestrial madness.

“Radiate” is the second single from Invisible, and it shows how Andre can dabble in multiple genres at once without ever sounding like he’s forcing anything. At the same time, he’s also exploring warm lyrical themes that juxtapose nicely with his colder instrumental palette.

“This song is about finding that almost mythical, special place in the world—a place you once called home, full of wonderful memories, that maybe you shared with someone truly special,” says Andre. “That place may no longer even exist in the same way that it used to, but it still holds a special place in your heart. For me, that place is California.”

We’re proud to premiere “Radiate” today on magnetmagazine.com. Check it out right here, right now.
