GRAMMY-nominated musician and multi-instrumentalist Michael Shuman AKA GLU is now set to show another side of himself with his independent debut EP, My Demons on February 24th.

To celebrate the new, Shuman has released an explosive video for the title track which features Phantogram’s Sarah Bartheland. The track explores how childhood traumas continue to seep into adult life with the coinciding video set to turn heads courtesy of a steamy, latex-laden Barthel symbolizing the demons that dominate GLU’s thoughts as he raps satirically through a leather ball gag.

Check out the track here.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the songs, Shuman explains:

“For me, My Demons was about being on my own terms; having my own momentum. This is something that is different because I do come from punk rock, but I’m doing this… so it’s not going to sound like your typical DJ or Hip-Hop producer. I want it to feel fresh, and that’s the most exciting thing for me.”

Recently wrapping a tour in the U.S. supporting Phantogram and a run of successful solo dates in the U.K., GLU will have more announcements in the coming weeks so stay tuned!

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
