SMALL TOWN GLOW

March 24th, 2016 - NipperTown Song of the Week


"Their collective sound reminds me a little of Blink 182 or Weezer, if only to distinguish them from a different sound, like the Dead Kennedys. Packin' Heat is garage punk at it's most primitive"
                                                                                                                                     - Michael hallisey, UpstateMetal (Oct 22, 2013)

'After that we’ve got a band called “Small Town Glow” And again, another independent artist who sounds so much like a major that everybody knows and this is Matchbox Twenty, Third Eye Blind...you listen to this band and you can actually hear the similarities. {{Third Eye Blind is one of my favorite bands, and I was nominated with Third Eye Blind several years ago for my debut album and then it was later nominated for International Album of the Year along with Robbie Williams, John Mayer, and Third Eye Blind}} When I heard this band I thought, that’s a great song, that’s a great band and they need to be heard on this side of the world.'

“Imagine if Kurt Cobain sang was the lead singer for Blink 182 and that band then had a week long affair with Green Day. The resulting bastard love child would be the sound of Small Town Glow*. A solid band hailing from the upper regions of New York,  Small Town Glow* has been silently building a following in the local circuit. A drummer, a bassist, and a vocal slinging guitar player, the line up follows the tried and true punk base. With driving bass lines and some wicked drum progressions, Small Town Glow* successfully resurrects everything we loved about the punk rockers of yester decade while instilling a much needed innovative boost to the dusty formula.”

Devil Yellow Sun from Small Town Glow, aka songwriter and sole permanent member, Josh Robin, sounds like Soundgarden after an injection of sunshine and fizzy pop. It's the alter ego of the grunge giants' classic Black Hole Sun and was so good it featured on the blog twice in the latter part of the year. -

​“New York singer/songwriter Josh Robin, also known as Small Town Glow, has released his music video for the title track for his upcoming EP Devil Yellow Sun, due to be out April 11. The grunge-style singer directed and shot the video starring a woman singing along to “Devil Yellow Sun” while walking around a pier. The video, while simple, gives a playful feeling to the song.”
