DMV-based pop musician, guitarist, and actress Alena Ciera has just released her long anticipated debut EP, “All In My Head.”
“All In My Head” is an exciting and catchy EP that will make you want to dance. It has ear-pleasing vocals, loud drums, electric bass, and electro-pop sounds. Additionally, Ciera’s EP features her single, “What You Want” which opens with a post-relationship narrative flashing back to her past with people she thought she loved the most.
“How could you talk about me behind my back like we were nothing? Can you stop listening to everyone who don’t know themselves?” Ciera sings in her single, “What You Want”. Ciera sings about being hurt, betrayed, and confused. She’s ready for something new in life but still reflecting on her past and the places she used to love.
In addition to her EP, Ciera will be performing in a few states across the country this summer. To find out more about her music, merch, and performances click here.

When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.
The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
