Bands Das Automatic & DJ Cuba Gooding Jr. merged to form Glasnost. Fusing elements of bands such as New Order and Cut Copy while combining the energy of a live rock show, Glasnost has become known for their stellar live performances. Their sound is far from typical: driving dance beats, lush vocal arrangements and multi-layered instrumentation. Influences include MSTRKRFT, Midnight Juggernauts, Justice and Gang of Four. Their forthcoming EP, The Great Divide, is out soon.
