“Glory” begins powerfully. The intro is a soft synth crescendo leading to a synched guitar/percussion thunder and then a 1970s sax sound (likely synth produced). The intro ends and “Glory” unpredictably turns into a melodic and lyrical gem. It is an anthem at heart – “I'm trying to bury, bury, the things I cannot carry.”
The thunder does return at the 1:55 mark, but 20 seconds later, “Glory” seamlessly transitions to a dream state. The song is dynamic. “Glory” is from Roy Juno, a trio in Allston/Boston, Massachusetts. The members are Henri Young (bass, synth), Sayak Das, and Josh Parra (drums, auxiliary sampling).
