Tonight’s exclusive is from a superb songwriter, who will go down a treat with fans of both lo-fi and alt-folk
Tender Glue is the name adopted by the New York based Poland-native, Tom Gluewicki, with the inspiration for the name coming from his childhood nickname, Glue, and the meaning of a friend’s name, Tender. Tonight’s exclusive is taken from Tender Glue’s excellent debut album Steady Light and is a lo-fi gem.
Of the track Gluewicki says: “The inspiration of the song came from a personal experience with my job and many of the details originate from real scenarios, including the name of the street. The Hope Street video is a collaboration with an artist named Christian Haberkern. I reached out to him after I saw one of his videos and asked if I could use it for Hope Street. It’s interesting how the song gained deeper meaning with his video and how well it goes with the song.”
He’s been likened to Of Monsters And Men, The Lumineers and Father John Misty. We’re also throwing Strand Of Oaks and The War On Drugs into the mix, because we think fans of those acts will dig Hope Street. As always, though, you can make your mind up by listening below…
