Interview: The Glitch Mob Brings Life Back to EDM

By Scott T. Sterling

“It’s very right here, right now,” Justin Boreta of the L.A. dance music trio The Glitch Mob said in reference to the EDM world. “People release singles and EPs and remixes, like one a month.”

But not Glitch Mob. They took nearly four years off between their 2010 debut, Drink the Sea and the recently released Love Death Immortality. A definite risk considering the EDM world’s penchant for instant gratification.

“We did something which is pretty uncommon in electronic music, to have some momentum going and stop and go away for a couple of years and then come back and reinvent ourselves in a way more traditional bands might do,” Boreta said. Following their debut, the guys earned a boost of exposure after their remix of the White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” was featured in the trailer for 2013 film, G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

For the Glitch Mob, reinvention meant moving from the sprawling, introspective sound of their debut to more bombastic, arena-ready beats prevalent on the new release.
