Dutch duo Glice find a sweet spot between noise and melody on their upcoming record

Amsterdam-based duo Glice, who've been working together for over a decade now, decided to pack up their gear in their studio base and head to Berlin for the recording of their latest record, joining up with Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten for the project.

The result is Cielo, a four-track record that sees the pair explore gritty, industrial-rooted sounds while also tapping into more melodic territory as heard on 'Jackdaw', premiering just below.

Recording Cielo allowed the duo to explore unknown ground further pushing their sound beyond the constraints of noise music and the expectations that come with the genre, with the duo working alongside Hacke to test their sound further.

Cielo, which is due out on November 1, is Glice's second full length record following on from 2015's LIX and trails a collaborative tape release with fellow Narrominded-affiliated artist Coen Oscar Polack released earlier this year. You can pre-order Cielo here.
