Starting This Month
Ft. Collins, Colorado’s Gleemer have premiered their new song “Pressure” and its accompanying music video via Substream Magazine. The shimmering single comes from the band’s upcoming full-length, Anymore, due out November 17th via Other People Records.
With so many bands mining the fertile ground of ’90s alternative lately, Gleemer stands out from the pack by taking a decidedly more nuanced approach to fuzzed out guitar rock. “Pressure” exemplifies Anymore‘s warmer textures and a dreamy-yet-powerful pay offs, all lovingly crafted by vocalist/guitarist Corey Coffman and multi-instrumentalist Charlie O’Neil in the home studio built in Coffman’s parents’ home.
Substream praised the track as “the kind of serene and atmospheric indie rock that completely swallows up everything its path. It’s a dense and impenetrable fog that slowly rolls over you, and, like a weighted blanket, fosters a feeling of safety and warmth that you don’t want to remove yourself from it.”Gleemer will be supporting Anymore throughout the Fall on a lengthy run of U.S. tour dates with Hundredth, Spotlights, and Tennis System, starting at the end of November.

Ft. Collins, Colorado’s Gleemer is rooted in the micro, the tiny parts of life that feel insignificant until you look back on them later and realize how much you’ve changed. It’s this attention to the details of life that fuels the band’s new full length, Anymore.
Gleemer started small as the solo project of guitarist/vocalist Corey Coffman, whose initial interest was mostly recording. At age 15, he’d already transformed part of his parents’ house into a makeshift recording space, which led to studying music engineering in Phoenix, AZ, and then working at a studio in Brooklyn, NY. Though he’d always dabbled in writing and recording his own music, it wasn’t until Coffman found himself alone in New York that Gleemer took shape. Coffman began sharing his song ideas via email with friends back in Colorado and the process soon proved so fruitful that he decided to move back home to pursue the band more seriously. The band would go through several line-up changes with each member leaving their mark, but the addition of multi-instrumentalist Charlie O’Neil was the final ingredient to Gleemer’s growth. The result would be Moving Away, an impressive collection of songs that introduced the band to a wider audience and hinted at the potential that would be realized on Anymore.
As Gleemer’s momentum grew, so did Coffman and O’Neil’s creative partnership as the duo played and recorded every piece of Anymore together in the home studio, giving the album a palpable sense of warmth and familiarity. Indebted to the ‘90s, Coffman and O’Neil use shades of emotional alternative’s vulnerability and the distorted grandeur shoegaze elements to create a dynamic sound that feels intimate and expansive all at once. Coffman’s considerate production feels like a labor of love as each track ebbs and flows between gentle atmospherics and huge fuzz-drenched catharsis. Gleemer’s songs often sound massive, but lyrically focus on individual instances. Much of Anymore is episodic, with Coffman’s plain-spoken poeticism drawing on his own experiences to create fictionalized vignettes that catalog the kinds of small details that can only be cherished in hindsight. While these dramatic scenes are often left unresolved, Coffman’s words encourage a kind of solace in uncertainty.
Sometimes it’s the littlest things that create the biggest impression. With Anymore, Gleemer seeks to capture these flashes of hurt, excitement, longing, and hope, and translate them into personal songs that supply universal touchstones. Through this process Anymore offers both a set of great songs and hopefully a little comfort, if only for a moment.
