Dublin, County Dublin


Press for Glimmermen’s I'm Dead LP:

Glimmermen have also manage to create a record of nine completely individual, unique songs – a feat which is surprisingly rare in a modern industry where musicians, especially smaller ones, rarely step outside of their comfort zone. I’m Dead really is a pleasure to listen to. Indulge Sound (UK)

"Glimmermen shine brightly. Look no further than 'Last Song', two and a half minutes of near-perfect power pop, or bittersweet lead single, 'This Town', as addictive as chocolate heroin" - Hot Press

There's a grittiness and urgency here that thrills, the debut album from this Dublin trio hits you like a punch in the midriff - Irish Independent

"A raw but engaging record full of accomplished and powerful songs" - Irish Daily Star

"The forces of light and darkness collide in fractured bass-and-guitar interplay and raw-throated bellows" -Spin (US)
