Glows is the dual project of London based designer, producer and label head GG Skips and visual artist Felix Bayley Higgins. Originally a solo project from Skips whose part in the South London music scene has been active as both an artist and promoter, hosting some of the first shows from Sorry (which Skips is now a member of) and black midi. In 2015 Skips co-founded the label Slow Dance which has released the Glows output from the beginning. Sonically, the music tends to be driven by propulsive percussion and electronics, alongside translucent synths and softly sung vocals. There is a focus on emotional intensity and how that is channeled through sound and visuals in tandem. As the sound skits from orchestral to ambient to hardcore industrial and dreamy avant-pop. Glows released early singles in ‘PERLA,’ ‘Foam’ and ‘Passing Talk,’ gaining support from NME, DIY, Radio 1, before collaborating with Bayley Higgins on debut visual EP ‘J.L HOOKER LOVE PLEASURE FOREVER.’ which was inspired by Blues artists and their role within the city, the modern sadboy culture, Skip’s troubles with mental health and tropical exotica. The piece was performed at a Sold Out The Royal Academy of Arts in 2019 and Skips and Higgins collaborated further on 2020’s soundpiece ‘Often Return’ also at the RA. Glows released the final solo single ‘EASY,’ before Higgins officially joined in 2020.
