Sanglorians are modern purveyors of heavy powerpop laced with classic hooks, dreamtime poetry, and orchestral swells. Bandleader Daniel Brummel toured the world in Ozma, Spain, The Elected, and Weezer before synchronistic and meditative experiences inspired him to form the mighty Sanglorians in 2010. Female vocalists Morgan Paros and Ihui Wu share the spotlight and provide violin, keys, and trumpet. Jeremy Keeler, Ron Gomez, and Jon Oswald round out the beastly rhythm section.

Biography

Sanglorians are modern purveyors of heavy powerpop laced with classic hooks, dreamtime poetry, and orchestral swells. Bandleader Daniel Brummel (vox/lead guitar) began studying harmony at age embryo. The native Angeleno later toured the world tirelessly as a member of Ozma, Spain, and The Elected before mystical and synchronistic experiences inspired him to form the mighty Sanglorians in 2010. Brummel's rich, catchy, melodic songcraft is joyfully executed with technical prowess and sex appeal by Ihui Wu (trumpet/keys/vox), Morgan Paros (violin/vox), Jeremy Keeler (bass), Jonathan Gomez (guitar) and Matt Mayhall (drums). The band's main influences include Arcade Fire, Metric, Muse, and Weezer (with whom Brummel has written and performed).


Lyrics

Love is the Speed of Light

Written By: Daniel Brummel

love is the speed / love is the speed of light it’s all i need / love is the speed of light you can’t exceed / joyous the sound / joyous the sound that fills my ears when you’re around / joyous the sound that echoes through the canyons now / beauty’s the sight / beauty’s the sight of sunshine in your eyes tonight / love is the speed of light / the beauteous sight / the joyous sound / the god of love will make it now / love is the speed / love is the speed of light it’s all i need / joyous the sound we’ve found resounding through the town / beauty’s the sight of sunshine in your eyes tonight / goddess of love i gotta have your loving now / goddess of love i gotta have you naked now / love is the speed / love is the speed of light / the beauteous sight / the joyous sound / the god of love will make it now / goddess of love, i gotta have you naked now / the beauteous sight / the joyous sound / we’ll make it now / (can’t fake it now / we’ll take it slow / we’ll listen now / be patient now / we’ll make it now) / love is the speed / all that i need

Seventh Avenue

Written By: Daniel Brummel / Ian Richardson / Gabe Hascall

they got everything they wanted / and then some / and still some were skeptical / but all our friends and neighbors gathered / to witness the spectacle: / chariots of golden floating / straight down seventh avenue / coming for to carry me back home / back home to you / and up in the heavens / down in the floor / i got your vibration shaking me / like never before / i got all i need and nothing more / if i had a plane i’d spell out / your name / across the sky / and if the wind should blow the letters away / well i don’t mind / i looked up to you for so long / i went blind / lost my common sense / but when i look at us from far away / it all makes sense / ’cause up in the heavens / down in my core / i got your vibration shaking me / like never before / i got all i need and nothing / i got all i want and nothing more

Self-Rememberer

Written By: Daniel Brummel

tonight i saw your face in the crowd / i wanted to scream out loud / i had to stop // and remember myself / the joy in my heart is so sincere / and though it’s been four long years / since you left to remember yourself / no one can take my love from me / erase the sky and drain the sea / no one can take my love from me / if we met like strangers on the street / i could fall at your feet / forgive and forget / and remember myself / now i see your face in the sun / i see you in everyone / and i stop // to remember myself / no one can take my love from me / i’ll give it all away for free / no one can take my love from me

Everybody Likes A Pretty Girl

Written By: Daniel Brummel

everybody likes a pretty girl. everybody wants someone who can't be his. they say there's more to life than pretty girls, but if there's more to life, i don't know what it is. i went along with every ruse that she played on me; she put me down to break my pride, still i waited so patiently to find a way to turn the light in her eyes on, to cut a key that eventually might open up that door. you know i never wanted anything more. every body likes a pretty girl, everybody loves it when you say you're his. i sent you postcards from the brink of insanity, wrote you song after stupid song, but you called it my vanity. and if desire is the root of my suffering, i never want to want again. i'll want nothing at all, except for sitting here just waiting for the call
