The newcomer has given another taste of his forthcoming LP with the second single lifted from the album.
Ahead of the release of his debut album, ULTRAGLU, Melbourne-based experimental rapper glu has dropped a glimpse of what’s to come with his sophomore single.
Titled ‘Tokyo’, the single reflects the serotonin-less void that follows a chemically-induced high, opening with the sounds of rainfall against a melancholic spoken-word intro.

Oscillating vocals intertwine with a fragmented soundscape, mimicking the scattered thoughts and depleted emotional energy that come hand-in-hand with a comedown.
“For me, this single is 3am somewhere unfamiliar and you’ve just got a bag and you don’t care. Shit, I don’t know, I feel like with music it’s in the eye of the beholder or whatever, everyone is going to take it how they want. I just want you to feel something,” says glu.
It’s a stark contrast from his previous single ‘The Party’, which embodies the energy of a drug-fuelled night with a frenetic, glitchy melody and screeching vocals.
A melting-pot of absurdism, hyper-aggression and a distinctly Australian take on horrorcore meets modern rap, glu’s sound is fluid and unpredictable.
Expect the unexpected when he drops his debut album ULTRAGLU in June.
