August 2007 - Heidrun from Gloss has some new material released with her new band, Cicada more details at :
pictures from japan here
A Scouse rhythm section, a Norwegian keyboardist and an Icelandic vocalist.
Welcome to Gloss world. The line up is :
Paul Cavanagh (guitar), Martin Lynch (bass), Paul Maguire (drums), Jonas Theis (keyboards) and Heidrun Anna (vocals).
They write and record songs that are timeless pop - rich in melody and drawn from influences such as the Beach Boys, Bacharach, Gainsbourg, Television, Stereolab, Barry White, Carole King, Blondie, Francoise Hardy, Air and Madonna. The nucleus of the band is Cavanagh and the alluring 26 year old Heidrun Anna. She's the lyricist and melody arranger, and together they combine forces to weave these elements into song form. The pair met in Liverpool in 1998 where Heidrun had studied at the Liverpool Institute Of The Performing Arts. She became involved in the city's close knit music scene and inevitably the two began to work together. Via Paul came Martin Lynch and Paul Maguire (former drummer with Liverpool faves The Stairs - remember the epic "Weed Bus"?) - whilst Jonas Theis, a classically trained pianist, completed the line-up having originally known Heidrun at LIPA where he too was studying. On the strength of a three song demo, Gloss were signed to Nude Records at the beginning of the year.
Their album - released in 2001 - will be a most refreshing alternative to the current saturation of all boy/all girl/mixed hybrid formulaic nonsense that has dominated proceedings over the past few years. Gloss simply shine.
