Glaare is a three-piece post-punk band from Los Angeles.
Cherry picking the best elements of darkwave, dream pop and goth-rock, they have been a burgeoning force in the LA scene since their formation in 2012. In a scene where style often blurs out substance, Glaare meticulously craft real songs with real hooks and intricate yet subtle arrangements.
“While they definitely fit into the darkwave sound, their songwriting stands out. Glaare spread their melancholy mood like how Dracula transforms into mist.” - Bandcamp
“Glaare’s gorgeous take on darkwave weaves lush dream pop elements with moody, 80’s-ish electronica and of course post-punk without ever sounding dated. Rachael’s vocals are simultaneously strong and delicate; like Nick Cave or Peter Murphy, she delivers her stories with depth and passion, but with the sort of ethereal prettiness associated
with Kate Bush.” - LA Weekly
