Glasvegas - The World Is Yours

Glasvegas, the alt-rockers from Glasgow, are prepping for the release of their sophomore album, EUPHORIC /// HEARTBREAK \\\.  Since their self-titled 2008 debut record, which received critical acclaim, the band has found a new drummer.  Replacing Caroline McKay behind the kit is Jonna Löfgren.  With this fresh face, Glasvegas recently released the stellar track "The World Is Yours".  It's an anthemic song that has been stuck on repeat since my first listen.

What starts with the dipping vibrato of a guitar ends with a bang.  This single is packed with energy that never gives out.  James Allan's thick accent may be the one defining factor that completes Glasvegas' unique sound.  In the internet age where "epic" is the most overused adjective you can find, "The World Is Yours" truly deserves that title.  The song is simply epic.

EUPHORIC /// HEARTBREAK \\\ will be released on April 4 (April 5 for US).  The band also just put out the record's second single "Euphoria, Take My Hand".  I recommend giving both of the tracks a listen.  You can download "The World Is Yours", for free, below.  If this single is a taste of what's to come, then keep an eye on Glasvegas.
