The latest song “Glow” accentuates the very aura of the Dr Fadeaway sound that Alathea Reese has been after. The track invites you to a disco of care, comfort & gentle boosts of confidence. “Glow” is the sound of life becoming covered in a chrysalis of rebirth, observing the changes both inward & outward as they occur in captivating states of both evolution by way of happenstance.

Alathea Reese shared the following insights on the new Dr Fadeaway tune “Glow”:
This tune was born out of a need for an outlet regarding real-life experience and a fixation on adding more dance-able percussion to our mix. In the same vein, we wanted to mirror that feeling you get when you’ve realized you might want to change your life or be a different person, or even move in a direction you never thought physically possible. Like a light went on that you never knew existed; doubting if you can handle it…you give in and say, what the hell?, and give it a good, long, confident wink.
