We Are Not a Glum Lot
We Are Not a Glum Lot
We Are Not a Glum Lot is a 4 piece indie/math/pop/ band from Colorado Springs Colorado. The group consists of Zac Blum on Bass, John Carey on Drums, Colin Foxwell on violin, and Singer/Guitarist Sam Erickson. The 4 piece formed after the members met as freshman in high school, quickly bonding over similar tastes in music. Shortly before the band's formation, drummer John Carey overcame a bout with cancer,resulting in the Make-a Wish foundation gifting a drumset to John. The band quickly generated buzz in their home town shortly after their formation due to their young age juxtaposed with their musical prowess. In 2012, the group was named "Best Indie-Rock Band" by the Colorado Springs Independent." Their style is often said to be a modern take on the Art Rock sound of the late 80's and 90's. Now in their early College years, the boys cite Modest Mouse, Foals, Explosions in the Sky, the Smiths, and the Strokes to be some of their main influences. With youth and the skill-set of musicians far more experienced than them working in their favor, the potential for the band seems almost endless.
