Lush and full yet soft-spoken, Down Through is a hazy dose of escapism. Blending elements from shoegaze, post-rock, to even hardcore through their heavier lyrical content. There is an atmosphere Gleemer creates that doesn’t leave when you're done listening, it’s hard to put that feeling into words. A heaviness that is somewhat calming. It’s mellow but not slow pace or simple. Time-shifts, intricate drums, a contrast between the noise and fuzz against crystal clear layered acoustics and melody.
Down Through has what you can describe as a lo-fi meets full-bodied sound. A subtly you can hear clearly throughout the record which was produced and engineered by Will Yip, whose attention to detail, reputation, and tenure expands beyond simply a few albums.
The record is best in full format, each song building on the prior in turn setting the atmosphere that resonates so long. As opposed to albums with a few singles laced with interludes and filler songs; Down Through is a purposeful slow burn that provides an escape from reality even if it’s only for a short while.
