Phoenix, Arizona’s shoegaze artists Glixen have just wrapped up various tour dates with SoftcultGlitterer, and fish narc, and they are back with a new heavy-hitting single, “lust.” Previously, the band released track, “foreversoon” highlighting the glow of new love.

Conversely, “lust” explores new infatuation, a more superficial connection with a new person. The new track is wrapped in face-melting, fuzzy guitar riffs, which craft an awe-inspiring juxtaposition with ethereal vocals. Check out “lust” below.

Lead vocalist Aislinn Ritchie says, “‘lust’ is about the yearning and wanting of somebody and the rush that that person makes you feel. It is a feeling that is shallow, yet it feels intense and passionate but only for a moment.”

Ritchie continues, “We wanted to take the direction of our sound to a heavier place. I wanted the weight of the sound to crush me.”

Surely, this is offering a taste of what is to come in Glixen‘s future. They released their debut EP She Only Said in 2024, and the artists are currently working on their sophomore EP, set to release in 2024.

Coming up in May and June, Glixen will be playing alongside acts including DIIV, SASAMI, and Interpol. Check out the full tour route below and secure your tickets here.
