Sydney based alternative-pop trio GLADES combines atmospheric synthscapes, reverb-laden guitars, with complex electronic pop beats. Multi-instrumentalists Cameron Robertson and Joseph Wenceslao formed their musical bond writing and producing artists from home, later adding vocalist, Karina Wykes to form Glades. The trio met during their high school years and still write, produce and perform all their own music. They now work closely with their management team ‘Saiko Management’ who were responsible for the breakout success of Lorde.
On November 2 the band released their debut album TO LOVE YOU which was supported by a national headline tour.
Following the success of their sell-out Australian national tour in May as well as tours with the LANY and Clean Bandit, the trio have spent the last few months in the U.S. putting the finishing touches on their debut album. TO LOVE YOU, includes breakout single Drive and more recent singles Do Right, Not About You and Eyes Wide Shut.
Glades first attracted widespread attention in 2016 after the release of their track Drive, which has since attracted 40 million streams. They also feature on FEKI’S single Love You Better. The band’s more recent single ‘Do Right’ is ARIA gold, having achieved over 60 million streams to date.
The group have amassed a staggering 170 million total streams and have an audience of over 1.5 million monthly Spotify subscribers.
They have appeared in Global Spotify Charts, Global Viral charts, Top 40 Australia and have secured #1 most played at Triple J on multiple occasions.
The release of TO LOVE YOU and the NATIONAL HEADLINE TOUR has consolidated the past 2 years of unprecedented success for GLADES. With the inclusion of previous singles and 7 brand new tracks, all produced in house, the album showcases their unequivocal talent.
