About this album

After months in the studio and 25 days into the tour, we are excited to announce that our first, full-length DRINK THE SEA album, including CD, vinyl, and deluxe packages, is now available through The Glitch Mob store.

We would like to thank all of you for the support and we hope you enjoy the music.


:: Fake Plastic Tunes Review ::
Drink the Sea is not the first electronic album to evoke an urban, nocturnal tone. However, the Glitch Mob is consistently successful here at creating a bird’s eye perspective of this hypothetical nighttime cityscape. Beginning with “Animus Vox”, the album’s rousing opener, and continuing through “A Dream Within a Dream”, this detached motif conjures elements of an aerial, scenic atmosphere. After a brief midsection lull- “Fistful of Silence” and “Between Two Points” are the album’s weakest links- Sea drops back down to earth with faster-paced highway tunes- including the single, “Drive It Like You Stole It”. While the sound is undeniably clubby (these tunes are without a doubt designed for the post-midnight dancefloor), the song structure is conceptual in nature. The synth lines and electronic loops rise and explode in the traditional mold- but the Glitch Mob takes those sounds in unpredictable directions once they inevitably reform. For all its excess and experimental gusto, the album remains a more or less reasonably efficient, calculating experience. The Glitch Mob DJs pace their electronic barrage well enough with the only real misstep being the aforementioned midsection.

    I've always been a "punk" and not found electronic music especially enthralling (exception dubstep, Skream <3) but i recently found out about Glitch Mob and maybe they are the group that'll make me change my mind.

    why is it tagged als glitch / glitchhop so much? there's no glitch in drink the sea.. at least I don't sound that out. Just because the band's name includes this word? however the album is phenomenal and I reeaaally like it!

    Does anybody give "Starve the Ego, Feed the Soul" any attention? It is up there with "Fistful of Silence."

    Every song sounds exactly the same, Justice's major flaw, but, unlike Justice, these guys actually know how to write catchy breaks. Wow, I've never been so impressed with a repetitive album before. How do they do it!? Looks like their next effort is shaping up to be even better, if the We Can Make The World Stop EP is any indication of their next direction.

    Ahead of its time. This is how the decent dance music is going to sound like in 5 years or so.
