Victoria Cecilia and Martin Audioun Klingman, also known as Danish/American shoegaze duo Gliss, have announced their seventh studio album, In Utopia. In Utopia will be released through their own Kraftwööd Musik Fabrik label on August 23rd. The upcoming album was recorded at the Evelyn and Mo Ostin Music Center at the Herb Alpert School of Music (UCLA) and produced by Cecilia.
Gliss has been active since the mid 2000s, when they released their Kick in Your Heart EP. Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins happened to discover the EP, and ended up taking the duo on his Future Embrace solo tour. The pair’s success continued with the release of their debut studio album, Love the Virgins. The lead single, “Blue Sky”, was featured on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show. More recent Gliss releases include Langsom Dans in 2013, Pale Reflections in 2015, and Strange Heaven just last year.
