Grab your pill box and your bottle of vintage (or at least that’s what you’re telling your fellow partiers) red wine. Rejoice it’s a party! Glovebox is here to pump new life into electro pop forging music to party with and all of this from down under in Australia. Occasionally hitting on the New Wave styles like with the robotic voice on album opener “Superstar” and the electronic beats prevalent throughout the entire self-titled affair, Glovebox makes singer Mishka sound like the female version of Thomas Dolby. Each song is incredibly catchy to the point of being plain infectious; with tracks this delightful and radio-friendly it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Glovebox is soon to be known as Australia’s best export.

Experimenting with her computer helped singer Mishkas find inspiration for more than just an album cover. By the time the Queensland born St Kilda based singer had finished scrolling through the typefaces on offer, she had renamed her band. "We got it from the fonts," Mishka explained, when asked how the Melbourne foursome came up with Glovebox. "There's a font called Glovebox on Photoshop. So that's where we got it - from the computer. "(The font itself) is a bit too squiggly for us, but we loved the name." Formerly the Positronics, Glovebox was initally made up of Mishka & friend and composer Grainger Lock. Both from Brisbane, the duo honed its skills in London. But even though Mishka describes Glovebox'x sound as "so Brit-Euro it's not funny", the going was tough in the UK. "As an Australian musician it was pretty hard," she said. "I went for a few auditions and stuff, but it is tough over there." Fast-forward seven years, and that statement no longer holds true. For starters they have been developing their "electrorganic rocktronic, poptronic - all the tronics" sound in Victoria. Glovebox also gained two more members, guitarist Morris Esposito and drummer Peter Cottier, as well as international acclaim. Last month they won the "Best New Hot Adult Contemporary Group" category at the New Music Weekly Awards in LA. There they shared the billing with the likes of Gwen Stefani, Rob Thomas, Maroon 5 and The Black Eyed Peas. "I want the world to hear what we do," she said. * Glovebox will play The East, Lygon St East Brunswick, tomorrow - Evonne Barry - MX - Melbourne Based Newspaper

Think Macy Gray fronting a techno band. This Australian band sounds
like a funky disco band from the seventies with a beatbox at times and a polished Mariah Carey production at others. “Superstar” is about as much fun as you can have without cracking up at the stupid dance moves it evokes. “Flying Free” takes a trip into Madonna style dance hit
territory. Other songs worthy of a special mention are “The Girl I
Love (Black & White Mix)”, “Serendipity”, “The Human Condition” and “$10 Whore”. If dance mixes are your thing then Glovebox has your number.

Electropop sensation GloveboX is well known in their native Australia, and with their debut album, the group is bringing what they call “electrorganic” music to America. The sound has the drive and pulse of dance music without the monotony that often plagues DJ-produced house, drum and bass, or down-tempo music. GloveboX is ready for the dance floor but unafraid to experiment with structure and melody. From Baria Records (www.bariarecords.com). Info: www.glovebox.net.au. —Preview: Troy Carrington

GLOVEBOX – GLOVEBOX: Glovebox aptly describes their music as "electroganic super pop". Glovebox is their self-titled debut featuring twelve eclectic originals and a remix. Their songs are diverse, melding electronic loops with live guitars and rhythms. Glovebox's sound is a mix of modern production with retro dance beats. Their chord structures are brash and Mishka is a skilled, versatile vocalist. 'In The End' is memorable with its danceable pulse, sound effects, varied vocals and a catchy chorus. '$10 Whore' opens with dark, dramatic keys before quickly kicking up the pace. Mishka sort of talks the storyline into the soaring refrain with singing, echoes and long held notes. The keys return with programmed effects to add density to the song. It is followed by the addictive 'Flying Free', which is heavy on mixed rhythms layered over a funky 70's groove and a captivating refrain. Glovebox is a bold, innovative band and their debut release is a perfect fit for any dance party!

FRIDAY, 12TH

GLOVEBOX When dance music gets it right, it does what its name implies by actually making you wanna shake it. Electropop outfit Glovebox deliver the goods with accessible beats made for workin’ it and lyrics ripe for sing-alongs. Most tracks on the band’s self-titled debut (some of which are already chart-toppers in their native Australia) are slick and instantly danceable, largely due to the band’s skillful application of a ’70s disco sensibility to modern electronic pop. (Hello, car commercials.) On the lead track, “Superstar,” singer Mishka and composer Grainger Lock get the beats right—and their priorities. “When the memory’s gone, way over the hill / And I can’t even recall who the hell you are,” Mishka belts, putting on her best cyborg Macy Gray over an infectious groove. “You’ll be sitting alone, about to swallow a pill / I’ll be off making love to a superstar.” The Basement –TRACY MOORE - May 2006
