The Glitch Mob’s New Album, “Ctrl Alt Reality” Takes Them Into Uncharted Terrain

For almost a decade, The Glitch Mob have been a cornerstone in electronic music, and their effect on live event production and musical trends is palpable, to put it mildly. But, in the time since their last studio album, See Without Eyes, in 2018 (not counting the Drink The Sea anniversary album, the Drink The Sea ambient version, and Revisions, all of which will be released between 2020 and 2021), the trio has delved into their processes and reviewed their history, emerging with Ctrl Alt Reality.

For the new album, the band abandoned their futuristic, glitchy sound in favor of a 10-track homage to the golden days of drum & bass and breaks. Obviously, there are still a lot of musicians that represent and promote those genres as their main sound, and The Glitch Mob aren’t aiming to invade anyone’s territory. They’re simply putting their own take on an old sound. Listen to Ctrl Alt Reality below.
