The Gladeyes

About the Artist

In 2001, Jade Farley met Gwen at art school in Auckland and the pair bonded over art, music, and boys. They made an initial impression on the local scene through a succession of lo-fi EPs, each of which hand unique hand-crafted cover art-work. Their debut album, Psychosic of Love, came out on Lil Chief in 2009. The best way to describe it is to imagine that a girl-group from the fifties reformed in the new millenium and decided to take control of their own music for change. The sweet melodies remain, but the songs are turned towards biting social observation and re-appropriation - as when they take classic rock favourite "There She Goes" and twist it's subject to fit their own ends on "There He Goes." Or when they take an angular punk tune by Die! Die! Die! and re-record it as whimsical indie pop.
