Tribute to one of ‘The 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time’ (Rolling Stone)
The Golden Glows: The Songbook of Harry Smith
The Golden Glows took the audience in tow through the wonderful ‘The Anthology’ during a long residence of AB Salon concerts. Not surprising, as the trio from Antwerp has immersed themselves in the Americana of the ‘20s and ‘30s for more than a decade now. They interpreted the collection with one microphone and a warm three-voiced harmony for six months long. 'Pureness’ was the magic word: acoustic and emotional.
Supported by genius synths, massive grooves and electronic soundscapes, the Glows bring Harry Smith’s masterpiece collector all the way into the 21st century. They found inspiration in the pop music of today to breathe new life into the pop music from back then. The band borrows style elements from hip-hop to demonstrate that Smith’s obscure Americana can still sound sexy, exciting and exceptionally relevant in 2019. Expect a deep dark glittering show.
On a previous visit to AB’s Main Hall, The Golden Glows wrote that their ‘Prison Songs’ would have the AB ‘in touch with the depths of its soul’. In 2019, they now shamelessly aim for your underbelly.
