GLOWW’s New Dark Pop ‘Elegy No. 1’


We first heard from GLOWW in November of 2020 upon the release of his second single “Reinvent the Love.” That track introduced readers of The Static Dive to a powerful and emotional Dark Pop sound. Lyrically GLOWW’s songs examine the complex psychological tug of war inherent to interpresonal relationships.

The otherwise anonymous GLOWW is a mysterious character.  Opting not to even show his face or divulge his place of origin, the multi-talented singer, songwriter and producer has created what he calls a “musical environment.” With elements of Trip-hop, DarkWave and Pop he concocts emotionally complex, soulful and poetic soundscapes.

“Elegy №1” is the latest single from GLOWW and his first in over a year, released worldwide to all major streaming services on January 22, 2022. The artist hasn’t missed a beat in his absence. The track opens on dark minor key ambient synths and a powerful, percussive downtempo beat. Ethereal backing vocals accompany the singer as he enters the mix with a soulful lead. He matches the dramatic mood of the instrumental with a mournful and longing soliloquy.
