Press for Glimmermen’s I'm Dead LP:

"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

Press for Glimmermen's Satellite People

"Satellite People, the trio's debut EP, turns out to be one of the best releases to invade my eardrums since the dawning of instrumental brilliance. Exceptional EP" - GMANWORLD

"Ballsy, bluesy ..Satellite People is the debut EP from post-punk trio Glimmermen, a genre-hopping new band composed entirely of homegrown underground rock veterans" - HOT PRESS

"Glimmermen are a different sort of band. In a sea of Spector-like indie landfill fodder they wear their honesty & integrity on their black sleeves with a sound that goes straight to the heart. Glimmermen know exactly the sound they want to make & that's something we want to hear" - Le Cool Magazine Dublin
