“as if,” the first single from i care so much that i dont care at all, is out now with an accompanying video directed by Adrian Villagomez. Produced with previous collaborators Jeff Hazin and Ralph Castelli, the track follows previous singles “three wheels and it still drives!” and “minnesota is a place that exists,” and begins with a sampling of actor Timothée Chalamet performing a monologue from the off-Broadway play, Prodigal Son, in one of his first acting roles.
glaive is coming off a monumental 2022, which began with a supporting slot on The Kid LAROI’s European tour, followed by an extensive run of headline dates across the U.K. and U.S., including a set at Austin City Limits music festival.
The North Carolina born artist’s three EPs to date—cypress grove, all dogs go to heaven (plus its deluxe edition old dog, new tricks) and then i’ll be happy with ericdoa—have received widespread critical acclaim, landing him at the top of Best Of lists from The New York Times, The FADER and more, resulting in a collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly on “more than life.”
Growing up in the small town of Hendersonville, North Carolina, glaive was first drawn to the sounds of radio-friendly pop songs he’d listen to in the car with his mom. His listening soon pulled him into the nascent world of SoundCloud rap and the dejected, genre-mashing songs of Lil Peep. When the pandemic hit in 2020, he spent a month indoors, in his room with black-out curtains. It was out of this period that his first songs came to be. He collaborated with friends he met online, forming musical collectives and experimenting with production. His subsequent rise was meteoric, powered by a steady stream of new music that quickly earned him acclaim and a devoted following. More music from glaive is imminent.
