"Glowfriends 'All Things Made New'"

"Their beguiling, intricately-layered pop tunes now sport a newfangled knife-edged kick...fetching, interwoven voices soar, while their intimate lyrics are like eavesdropping on a private conversation. They've been called "Dreamcore" or "Kalamashoegaze," but to me it's simply wonderful music." - The Big Takeover

"Glowfriends 'Gather Us Together' (2014)"

“Constructed of guitars bouncing to and fro between jangly and crushing, and rhythms that rise and fall, Gather Us Together manages a maze of multiple moods...a beautiful psychedelic tinged aura, encompassed by melodies ranging from dreamy to heavy rest in every corner of Gather us Together leading the set be an experience you won't soon forget. These are the kinds of tunes that really pull the listener in. Assured and arresting, Glowfriends have a deep and sincere understanding of the music they play, and Gather Us Together is a testimony to their dedication to their art. A bang-up job all the way!" - Something Else Reviews

"Glowfriends 'To Have & To Hold' (NAMED BEST LOCAL ALBUM OF 2009)"

"Few bands get to coin their own genre. Fewer can include their hometown in it. For glowfriends, calling their take on dreamy, occasionally driving indie-pop "Kalamashoegaze" fits as perfectly as a warm embrace. Preceding the third year of their stellar summer annual Kalamashoegazer Festival, the quintet's fourth full-length came out well-crafted with the mesmerizing melodies of brother and sister lead vocalists April and Mark Andrew Morris enchanting listeners as they explored every aspect of love." - Recoil


Still working on that hot first release.



From the small town of Kalamazoo, MI, Glowfriends got their start as the brother and sister duo of  Mark Andrew Morris and April Morris, (now April Zimont). Over time, the band has grown into a five-piece and have been making a name for  themselves  and for Kalamazoo in  the Shoegaze & Dreampop  genres.Through some extensive  and  recording they have  come  to  develop a  sound uniquely their  own, featuring; vibraphone, ethereal male & female vocals & the occasional noisy guitar outburst.   

While still keeping their day-jobs, Glowfriends have managed to take their brand of Dreamy Indie rock all over the place...NYC, Philadelphia, Boston, San Fransisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, Milwaukee, Detroit, Nashville, and the UK; just to name a few.  Locally, the band's founding members are also responsible for putting on the Annual Kalamashoegazer music festival held in Kalamazoo, MI.  

Glowfriends also had their song, 'Today Could Be The Day', used on the MTV Show Teen Wolf.
