Morabeza Tobacco – Defenders of the Glam
Stockholm duo Gustav + Vanilla aka Morabeza Tobacco follow up their instant chillwave classic "TTYL" with another hazy lo-fi jam, out today on Luminelle / Naiv Recordings. "Defenders of the Glam" starts off in full early-Ariel-Pink-homage mode, before becoming a duet on that soaring earworm of a chorus -- We could be happy and we could be fine, been waiting forever for you to come by -- and lifting off into a warped, glowingly romantic '80s disco-glam glitterbomb. Vanilla says of the track, which is loosely based on a dope obscure '80s cartoon theme:
"'Defenders Of The Glam’ is about the feeling of a childhood crush, the feeling when you’re head over heels about someone you saw in the schoolyard or in the lunch line. When the only thing one could do was fantasise and romanticise the day it would finally happen”
