Harry Miller aka Glow In The Dark is neither to be found on any social media channel nor can you google anything about him, let alone does he maintain a website. The man hides completely behind his music and quite obviously in his studio. After his debut in February earlier this year, now already a few months later, his second album drops, “Into Existence.”
Like his first album “Future Bliss” (SK336LP) the 8-track LP shines in a stylistic richness encompassing musical landmarks like Nu Funk, Chill wave or Leftfield electro pop. But still the eight songs, played in the right order, result in a coherent overall picture. Apparently Miller’s studio must be quite lugubrious. Or should one understand the dedication on the back of the cover (“Dedicated to all the lovers that exist in the dark”) even as reflection of his emotional perception? Listening to the music you tend for the latter.
“Hideaway” und “Sultry Creatures” both base on a vocoder voice which at the same time sounds enraptured and also entranced. On “The Key”, though, you hear Miller’s voice after all (almost) unalienated. “got HYPE” is deceleration medicine in a dangerous dose. As well as “Arise”, which seems not to originate from this world. By now, Glow In The Dark lives probably in his very own universe and that’s the reason why you can’t find out anything about him at all. Only too well did he send us this postcard in form of “Into Existence”, this in every moment very impressive, very intimate album. Thanks.
