Limited Edition of 333 copies on regular Black Vinyl.

Shortly after the 2023 album “Void”, Anna Nin AKA Glaring is presenting her all new album! Since 2018, GLARING has been continuously releasing music, both independently digitally and on Vinyl/CD/Tape on various labels. This is reminiscent in the best sense of the Tape Scene of the 80s and early 90s, when everyone could make music completely independently and bring it to the people... a time of wild and enormous creativity. But in contrast to many bands of that time, GLARING maintains a high musical standard and despite sometimes quite different styles, there is always a continuity that makes Anna Nin's music recognizable. The roots are clearly based in New Wave, Coldwave and Darkwave of the 80s and 90s. Flat synthesizer sounds, minimalist drums and almost ethereal vocals, which are more like an addi- tional instrument, are always complemented by wavy guitars and basses and merge into atmo- spheric overall works that are actually - even though the album is released in spring - the perfect soundtrack to autumnal walks in foggy forests.

The opener “Milky's Way Out” already brings back memories of the romantic tracks from The Cure's “Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me”-album, who doesn't immediately think of songs like “One More Time” or “A Thousand Hours” - or even „The Funeral Party“ from „Faith“? You almost expect Robert Smith's pleading vocals to start at any moment. Things get a little darker with “Sickness Unto Death,” for example, which almost has soundtrack-like vibes. “Numbergasm” seems to move through the entire body with its dull drums and could come from New Order’s “Lowlife” album. “I feel like I'm going to dream tonight” offers exactly what the title promises. One can only repeat it... there is a vibe here like that of the legendary labels Lively Art or 4AD, only in a slightly more electronic way. GLARING stands out from the average Darkwave/Post- punk of recent years with a certain introversion. It is, in the best sense, magical music!
