Governors Ball Preview: The Glitch Mob via Los Angeles

Trip out to the electronic band’s latest release See Without Eyes and see Los Angeles through their lenses. 

The Glitch Mob is an electronic trio comprised of Justin Boreta (Boreta), Ed Ma (EdIT), and Josh Mayer (Ooah). When asked to describe their sound in six words or less, they summed it up in three: Spiritual dance odyssey. We’re fans of their moody, industrial sound that seamlessly translates into an instant dance party thanks to a mega stage instrument they call Blade 2.0.

They’re currently on the road in support of new album See Without Eyes, an expansive sonic experience born out of time spent in Joshua Tree. Before each show they do a 30-second meditation to bring themselves “into the moment.” Prepare your own self for a “full body auditory journey.”

The live version of “I Could Be Anything” will feature an appearance by ethereal vocalist Elohim who guests on the track and is on tour with the band. Another highlight of the album and one we can’t wait to hear live is the slippery smooth track “How Do I Get to Invincible.” Of the track, Ooah says it’s “our tribute to the innovation happening in pop and R&B right now.”

When they’re not on stage, you might find them checking out Moses Sumney and Jack White.
