After three rounds, we’ve finally reached our Final Four! Both matchups this round are below. By advancing this far, all of these songs have earned a permanent spot on our Glassetonbury Hall of Fame playlist and are one step closer to winning a featured interview on Glasse’s front page, a live set/fan Q&A hosted by Glasse’s Instagram, and more. Polls close Sunday, November 1st at 3:00 p.m. CST. Happy voting!
“Heartless” – Luxe
With “Heartless,” Toronto-based artist Luxe returns with his signature blend of emo and trap to create a dark, genre-bending single that fans of early Linkin Park might really enjoy. It feels massive and cinematic at times, with heavy guitars and tight percussion supporting a grimy flow and the occasional violin riff. Last round, it defeated biz colletti‘s “Trust Myself.”
“Undercover” – Gabrielle Current
Gabrielle Current‘s “Undercover” is a vibey, vocally-driven slow jam that proves why she’s deserved the opportunities to collaborate with artists like Kaskade and Cassian. The vocals are airy but tight, and the buttery guitar tones fill the gaps perfectly. This neo-soul/R&B song made a huge rally in the last day of voting to sneak a victory over Parrotfish‘s “Bleeding” in our biggest Glassetonbury comeback yet.
“DAISY LANE – Spectoral Remix” – Kathana x Spectoral
Melbourne producer Spectoral‘s remix of Kathana‘s “Daisy Lane” possesses a noticeably more stripped-back, chill energy than the original. This mix has the type of downtempo ambience that makes for the perfect soundtrack to a night drive down the interstate, with arpeggiated synths and a melodic, satisfying breakdown in the bridge section. It defeated “Insatiable” by Xandor and Katie DiCicco in the Elite Eight.
“Energy” – The Gyrating Hips x Jenni Rudolph x Hazansky
The dangerously funky “Energy” is the opening track from The Gyrating Hips‘ “S/T” EP, which the Los Angeles band released in August. The song features important contributions from fellow LA musicians Jenni Rudolph on vocals and Hazansky on keys. It has an intoxicating, syncopated groove that reels you in from the first note. The pre-chorus gives you a brief section to catch your breath before a pumping, memorable hook that latches you on for more. It defeated “Magnetic” by Bashaya Soul last round.
