Keeping the momentum going after an amazing string of releases followed by one of the albums of the year, the band releases Glory with its accompanying video. out on the 27th of November, the track is a glorious celebration full of hope. At the core is a lo-fi industrial pulse which is overlaid by a triumphant vocal; simple and uplifting. It breaks into an emotional chorus which like everything Trupa Trupa tears at your heartstrings.
