The Glorious Sons hold true to their name on their second album, The Union. These Kingston, ON boys know how to rock and get listeners’ hips moving.

I can imagine this band playing at a music festival; if they sound as good live as they do on this album, I would bet they put on an awesome show.

From the first few riffs of the opening song, “Man Made Man,” I was hooked. The album is filled with party songs and their upbeat rhythms are addicting.

The lead singer, Brett Emmons, belts out interesting and relatable lyrics in a way that, at times, reminds me of an ’80s Billy Idol.

There are a few surprises on The Union. The uplifting “Lightning” leans more towards pop-rock, instead of maintaining the grungy sounds of the previous songs. “Amigos” also stands out on its own, being a slow piano-accompanied ballad.

I’ll be keeping these guys on my radar.
