X-Ray Recordings are proud to introduce the latest band to join the fold and commit their music to flexi disc, Mickey Gloss. Their single ‘Crocodile Smile’ is available from the X-Ray Recordings online store from July 9th and in most independent record stores from July 16th.
Mickey Gloss is a Psychedelic Punk Party Band that started in Australia and ended up in London. The three piece combines masochistic guitar slabs, eerie keyboard swarms, bombastic drumming, transient fairy tales and savant bass minimalism to create beautiful static lullabies.
Side A and B of their flexi disc, ‘Crocodile Smile’ and ‘Little White Lies’, illustrates their ability to find the truth within pop, by proving what all good pop songs must: that there is a better world than the one presented. Mickey Gloss qualifies the statement that the pop they make will be influenced by the endless complexity of imagination and not a prescribed image of manufactured consent.
X-Ray Recordings is a London-based record label aiming to spread the word about bands they love whilst creating interesting, exciting and affordable physical releases that showcase each band’s originality. Previous releases include flexi discs with London psychadelia band Trogons, Atlanta Georgia’s riot girls The Coathangers and a flexi postcard with The Fair Ohs.
