Press for Glimmermen's 'Breakin' Out' LP

"Taut percussive shouty pop from the Dublin quartet, who spice a springy ambience and apocalyptic caveat with added brass stabs, that sees them homing in on the three chords that would change the world. I'd say their gigs are a buzz." - Eamonn Carr - THE HERALD

"Amid the cracked grooves and blasts of brass, songs such as the excellent, evocative Ragged City paint a more reflective, downbeat picture... a concise collection, but there is plenty of eating and drinking in it" **** - Irish Times

"Each of the release’s nine tracks threading together to form an effort where the major key and quietly emphatic cogitations on the everyday meld to form a refreshingly optimistic album bursting with real heart and instant, carefully-considered songwriting. "- The Thin

"The addition of brass is a huge plus here, and the fleeting New Wave ideas and extreme diversity are punk in a way Nick Cave or Gang of Four would be classified. It wouldn’t surprise me if the band are all the rage in their home of Dublin; if there’s any justice, that praise should be widening significantly with this gem." - New Noise Magazine (USA)

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 (USA)
