Melbourne’s The Glorious find a surprisingly simple means of expressing emotions as complicated as young love, longing and connection. Poignant and powerful, the band’s acoustically driven new single “Last Game of the Season” enshrines these potent feelings in a nostalgic bubble that radiates with the weight and importance of our feelings in the moment.

Last Game of the Season – The Glorious
It’s comforting
This place still looks
Just the same
Will you meet me
At the last game of the season
For one more time

Atwood Magazine is proud to be premiering “Last Game of the Season,” the latest single off The Glorious’ forthcoming fourth album, Kings (independently out June 1, 2018). The Melbourne indie rock trio of Dave Mather, Daniel Gard’ner and Joel Loukes, The Glorious have made a slow and steady name for themselves through their own moving brand of heartland-inspired music and melodies, drawing inspiration from The Eagles, Bruce Springsteen, Band of Horses, The Band, and more.

“Last Game of the Season” is an “ode to the romantic yearning of youth and the intangible power of specific emotions we all experience at a certain age,” the band’s lead songwriter Dave Mather tells Atwood Magazine. “The song is inspired by the high school drama ‘Friday Night Lights’, where the concerns that dominate teenagers’ lives are very real and experienced deeply – first loves, an uncertain future, pressure to meet expectations, and the passionate love of your football team. The final game of the season is symbolic of the seismic changes we experience at a young age. The song is about letting go of one chapter of your life and moving on to the next, and the mixed emotions that come with this. There is excitement and anticipation, but also a certain sadness and loss of innocence. There is a knowledge that this phase is coming to a close, and that something new is around the corner.”

Once we leave here we can’t come back, and I’ve been waiting to tell you that,” the band sings, echoing the finality of the moment. It’s a reminder of how precious time really is; of how every theoretically important moment in our life is eventually one we look back on. All we can hope for is to embrace every moment as vividly and unabashedly as possible, so that we can at least look back fondly, knowing we were fully present for the most meaningful parts of our lives.

Once we leave here we can’t come back
And I’ve been waiting to tell you that
Look at me, the heart can feel
What the eyes don’t see
I know they say every end is a
New beginning
And so it will be

Mather delves deeper, reflecting on how the song captures the intoxicating enchantment of our teenage years—when aspirations and passions are felt with piercing intensity. This experience, he suggests, is akin to the thrill of a football game where the stakes are high, drawing a parallel to reading a 토토 커뮤니티 후기, where the highs and lows of gamers echo the fervent heartbeat of youth. The Glorious beckons us to revisit those charged moments, the heady blend of nerves and anticipation, akin to the emotions evoked by a decisive sports match or an eagerly awaited event.

These reminiscences, whether it’s a nerve-wracking first kiss or the climactic countdown of a pivotal match, are more than mere memories; they’re the vibrant chapters of our stories, steps that mark the journey of a life fully embraced, reminding us that every past moment propels us forward.

Stream “Last Game of the Season” exclusively on Atwood Magazine! The Glorious’ new single is out everywhere this Friday, 4/20/2018; new album Kings is out June 1, 2018.
