“Gloria are a six-piece band, with three girls (one of which also handles keyboard duties) providing the breathtaking vocals that undoubtedly constitute their signature sound. Formed by composer/musician/producer Kid Victrola, Gloria are as magical live as they are on record, a feat achieved by a combination of musical competency, excellent melodies, and an overall magical aura that is both refreshing and comforting like a good pink lemonade.
In Excelsis Stereo, their first full-length, is a discreet yet powerful showcase of top quality, fuzz-filled garage that sees them drinking from the same spiked fountains Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, or The Mamas and The Papas did. However, their pièce-de-résistance is indeed the Ronettes-on-Acid vibe provided by the three-part harmonies that turn each song into an exotic valley of synesthetic sensations.” | ‘The 405’
