Music can be both armor and ammunition. It can help surmount obstacles, heal wounds, or offer invincibility. On rare occasions, records can encompass all these distinct ideas. That's where the supergroup trio of instrumentalist/producers - Justin Boreta (aka Boreta), Ed Ma (aka edIT) and Joshua Mayer (aka Ooah) - in LA's The Glitch Mob exist, in that timeless space where infectious anthems elicit maximum emotion.
2011's We Can Make the World Stop EP served as the follow-up to the band's breakout 2010 debut full-length Drink The Sea and is an engaging three-track sample of the diverse sounds produced by edIT, Boreta and Ooah. Title track and lead single "We Can Make the World Stop" is classic Mob style heard on a new horizon. Punishing drums, synthetic strings and plenty of open space are invigorated with the addition of eager guitar strums, piano melodies and warm horns; the resulting track is rich with rock drama, an intriguing electronic offering that digs in deep.
With perilous violin sweeps and heart-pounding drum rolls, "Warrior Concerto" is the most tension-filled track on the EP. An expectant intro crashes into the breathtaking first drop, and the energy continues to brighten throughout the track, stopping short at the finale and leaving listeners' hearts pounding dangerously close to the edge of their minds. Pensive and dirge-like, "Palace of the Innocents" captures a soulful, almost ancient ambience. Fueled forward by a bittersweet sense of departure whose depth increases with the BPM, this chasmic track conveys the wistful dreams of a heavy heart.
